Henk and Doreen are perfect hosts. They gave us a warm welcome. The room was immaculate as was our private bath and the entire home. We stayed three days, and we wish we could have stayed longer.
Doreen spent time with us each day detailing the ins and outs of the area. She made several suggestions on places to go; without her expert advice, we would have missed them.
Breakfasts were delicious! Homemade muffins and egg dishes prepared each day--in addition to cereals, fresh fruit and yogurt--and great coffee and juice.
Henk even brought my husband a glass of a new beer; he brought us a delicious homemade recipe snack and even gave us the recipe-showing us the jars of ingredients so we could replicate it. Henk told us where we could buy the incredients--and we did so!
2 guests wanted the lounge to themselves; we said we would watch Serena's final in our room. It was not a problem, but D&H opened a private area so we could have a bigger screen.
Great sunsets can be seen in a swing chair overlooking the water.
Anything you need was provided--robes, toiletries, advice, great food and gorgeous views-
We forgot our computer mouse, and Doreen called us and e-mailed us offering to send it to us. That is service!
We have stayed in B&B's in Western/Eastern Europe and South America. This was the most home-like and comfortable B&B ever; you can't find kinder people!
We left after getting big hugs from both. They treated us like family. STAY HERE!!! These two go above and beyond in providing comfort, advice and good food.
