We had a wonderful two-night stay in Abbeymoore. We were welcomed by co-owner Anne at the time of our arrival. She gave us a little tour of the property right there. This is a wonderful home in a beautiful neighborhood of Victoria. It is steps off of the Government House, where we took evening strolls with my husband. The owners are right there at the property. Every detail is thought of. There are plenty of snacks, home-made cookies, fruits, hot drinks and sodas in the dining area available to the guests at all times; but better than that is the breakfast. We had wonderful greek yogurt parfaits, banana nut bread and ricotta filled crepes in the morning. We truly enjoyed co-owner Ian's company at the breakfast. Both owners are wonderfully warm and welcoming. During both afternoons we sat on the front porch, and enjoyed tea and snacks. Anne also helped us out with restaurant and attractions suggestions. We did what she suggested and her suggestions were perfect. She was like a quasi-travel agent for us. The next morning we had to leave early and miss breakfast. They packed a wonderful to-go breakfast for us. It was bountiful with smoked salmon sandwiches, cheese, boiled eggs, cereal bars, yogurt parfait, chocolate, juices and tea/coffee. You can see their generosity in every little detail. We stayed at one of the garden suites. It was very nicely decorated, had a separate bedroom, a sleeper sofa in the living room, and a kitchen with a full-size refrigerator, electric range, pots, dishes and utensils, coffee machine, kettle, and teabags. The rooms were really clean. There were Lindor chocolate balls next to our beds when we first arrived, by the way. There is off-street parking on the premises. Anne and Ian love what they do - it shows in every detail and there are plenty of them. Thank you Anne, Ian and the lovely staff!
