Having read all the reviews on trip advisor, we decided on VV with expectations that the stay will enrich our vacation. We had a little difficulty locating the BnB as the houses are not numbered... making it less intuitive. that was easily resolved by asking people in the neighborhood. we were initially surprised that it is nestled in a residential area and hence gave the feeling that we were staying over with a friend rather than paid hand-picked accommodation, meant as a mini highlight (having read the reviews). apprehensions did not ease when David appeared and looked very young (our impressions of BnB owner are experienced matured adults). in retrospect, i must add that David and Philipa appears because they are well groomed and kept, nothing to do with experience! we were soon led to Room 3 which was a tad smaller than what the picture showed on the website but it was not a problem because the huge bathroom with a tantalising bath made up for it. the range of toiletries used and the furnishings reflect the personalities of the owner- contemporary and stylish. on top of that, none of our requests have met with an "i'm afraid...". they were all met with a smile. we emailed our request on site and received a reply very quickly again testimony to the progressive nature of the business. overall i would recommend this to anyone looking for the style of a modern hotel with the hospitality of a more traditional BnB. the property reflects that too- the best of heritage spruced up by a touch of modernity.
