I can't say enough about this lodging experience. We stayed in The Strand, a beautiful, cozy cottage with stunning views off the veranda. The complimentary "mini bar" should be called a complimentary pantry--it was stocked with two bottles of wine, olives, fresh bread, spreads and other snacks for cocktail hour and fresh brown eggs, bacon, juice, etc. for breakfast. An extremely comfortable bed with crisp linens completed our experience. Every detail was accommodated for. Delightful. Would go back in a heartbeat (if the flight wasn't 16 hours, especially!) Highly recommended.
