Our visit began Thursday afternoon 15th November 2012 and continued to Sunday morning.
We arrived at the arranged time of 3 pm, to be greeted by our hostess, Danielle at the front door.
Danielle gave us a quick tour of "our" portion of the house and showed us our room.
After unloading our luggage we settled in for coffee and freshly baked cake thoughtfully provided.
We then went about exploring Leura. Later that evening we dined in Leura, before turning in for a very good night's sleep.
We awoke fully refreshed and enjoyed a delicious breakfast cooked by Danielle.
Life quickly settled into a very comfortable pattern, Good food, good sleep and plenty to see.
Danielle is justifiably proud of her house, which is of solid construction with wonderful thermal stability and set in a lovely garden. The house, and equipment in the house all work well, looks good and is all clean.
Equally Danielle is justifiably proud of her cooking and seems to thoroughly enjoy her position as hostess. By the end of the weekend we felt as though we had known her all our lives.
Parting was actually slightly sad.
