Yeap, both Reta and John were absolutely amazing! They gave us a discount on our stay to make up to their mistake for providing the wrong direction to their place. They even offered through the phone to pay for the cab fee that we had to use in the end to get to their place. Very nice couple!
Reta's very friendly and helpful. You can tell since she's also the finalist of the friendliest ladyowner of B&B in 2009 (might be mistaken of the year). Breakfast was superb and they were very accommodating to my request. You have nothing to feel unsatisfied about the house. It was so comfortable that my girlfriend and I could just stay in the house and not go to the city! Definitely clean. There's also a small lounge area where you can borrow DVDs and use the computer.
This place is more suitable for folks who want quality stay and away from the bustling city. pretty far away from the city BUT frequent bus no.44 takes you to the city in 20 minutes. bus tickets are cheap but u'll be better off with renting a car if you want flexibility. overall, an absolute pleasant stay!
