Located in (the suburb of) Paradise, this hotel had a lot to live up to. It achieved this because it truly was amazing - a real show home with white marble floors and designer furniture.
Our room was stunning, along with the view from our balcony.
Owners Bianca and Ross were as glamorous as their house. They were incredibly welcoming, full of bright ideas on what to do in the area and recommended brilliant places to eat (Bramon Vineyard, a cafe on the Kynsna headland, and an Italian restaurant)!
Breakfast was great and they also cater for food during the day. There was also an honesty bar. The staff were superb; they did some laundry for us and returned it in a matter of hours, they kept the house looking spotless and we even discovered that they had cleaned our rental car before breakfast.
It was expensive (certainly the most expensive of the 5 places we stayed), but well worth the extravagance if you wanted to treat yourself. I would love to go back!
