The Villa is an absolute Jewel in hospitality. Sitting on the crest of a hill, overlooking the tranquil river and rural surroundings, this elegantly appointed home offers the best there is in boutique bed and breakfast accommodation. Ray and Jenni are the perfect hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Jenni's dinners and Ray's breakfasts challenge the best available. A wonderful place to stay en-route or idyllic getaway.

A wonderful, picturesque and luxurious place to unwind for a couple of days. The Villa and surrounds are a place to enjoy each others company, a litle slice of heaven! Jenni and Ray went out of their way to make sure that we could have our privacy for our first anniversary, and still socialise a little with the other guests. The artworks and furnishings are a treat in themselves, as are the beautiful gardens. The Lakeview Room gave great views of the property, while maintaining privacy. I am sure we will be back!

Room Tip: All the rooms are beautiful, the Lakeview room, I think, has the loveliest view, but no bath tub...s...

When you're planning a special weekend away and choose somewhere over 1200kms away, you're tempting fate.

No dropping in to assess the suitability and no friends to ask for a rating. Press the "Pay" button on the website and hope for the best. Photography can make silk purses out of sow's ears, so I was expecting to be a little let down.

I hadn't been in this part of the world before and it appeared that we were driving along increasingly narrower roads once leaving the freeway, so I was concerned that perhaps this was a shack on a boggy creek.

Ahh, how wrong! True, the road on which The Villa is situated is a little bumpy, but once you enter the tree-lined drive, serenity hits.....

We were greeted by Ray as we stepped from the car and welcomed through the grand front doors into a majestic foyer. I felt as though our bodies and our souls relaxed on that entry.

We strolled around the rolling hills, then plunged in the pool before a romantic, private dinner for two in a dining room filled with wonderful antiques and history.

Our room, the Lake View Room, which I would recommend waiting for if necessary, had luxurious linen and bedding and 180 degree curtains opening on one side to the most spectacular and peaceful valley and on the other, the terrace.....I could have spent all 3 days on the terrace. It was expansive but private, with hidden seating if the mood took you.The food.....I would be happy to receive in any fine restaurant. The company, friendly but unobtrusive.

It really is as good as it looks! Can't wait for our next visit.

Thank you Jenni and Ray.

Room Tip: Definitely The Lake View Room, oh......did I mention the bathroom......double shower in seductive ma...

Beautiful location on a hill. Only 10 minutes off the highway, from John's River. Beautiful huge new house. Luxurious marble bathrooms with heated tile floor and giant showers. Fabulous food, plenty of space, great hosts.
Beautful spot looking out over green rolling hills. Very tranquil.

Room Tip: Only three rooms. All are great.

Jenni and Ray have done a magnificent job in a short time with the building and 'tweeking' of this impressive, purpose built home and accommodation. Every detail has been thought through - from decor to landscaping, views to varied and/or private 'spaces' available to their guests - culminating in a sumptuous and yet comfortable environment. The hosts are neither invasive nor aloof; allowing their guests to regulate the degree of connection they wish to have with either themselves or other guests. Jenni and Ray's meals are both beautifully presented and plentiful and they are very accommodating in every respect. The rooms are beautifully appointed and meticulously decorated in keeping with the Tuscan theme and it is a pleasure to be anywhere at all in the home or around the grounds. I would also like to say that, given the quality of the lodgings and the considering the generous meals and trimmings, the tariff is eminently reasonable.

If you're looking for an escape from busy, working life or simply want to relax overnight with that special someone in grandeur accommodation, all class and treated like royalty- then this is a place for you! From marble bathrooms to amazing artworks and tuscany-inspired verendah overlooking the lake, your money will be well spent. Jenna and Ray are wonderful hosts and it was a privilege being guests in their glorious villa. Might I add Jenna's cooking was to die for!
