We arrived late evening at Butterfly Farm and received a nice welcome from Karen who had also contacted us in advance to advise us to eat beforehand as there would not be anywhere to eat near them at our expected time of arrival. We were shown to a nice 'apartment' with a lounge area and a separate four poster double bedroom with adjoining shower room. The lounge area was stocked with Tea and Coffee and the fridge with some small welcome snacks and juice which was a nice gesture. We had a great nights sleep and then had a lovely full cooked breakfast and then chatted to Karen and her husband John who gave us sketches and information on the best and most picturesque coastal views and a wildlife conservation area enroute to our next desination (Robe). Our only constructive criticism is that this was the only accommodation that we booked through hotels.com that we did not get a reward point for and it seems it was because they did not take our credit card payment until departure.
