We stayed at Stephanies for two nights recently, looking forward to a weekend of "luxury". However, we were very disappointed to find the house very tired and run down. The "courtyard" that was attached to our room was small, covered on all sides by trellis that made it quite poky. The seats and table needed paint and the plants very uncared for. Inside there were cobwebs above the bath, wallpaper peeling, and cracks in the walls. The hosts were very friendly, but we learnt that they have sold the property to developers who intend to demolish the house - this probably explains why maintenance has been let go. At $200 per night we expected more. This one definately didn't live up to our expectations.
