Two people, unknown to one another, in the space of less than 2 hours of our arrival in Sydney asked if we knew where we were staying (we didn't) and then immediately with warmth, recommended Bev & Gordon's Colby House. We are SO glad they did.
After our experience of a couple of nights on the road at run-of-the-mill soulless hotels, arriving and being welcomed by Bev & Gordon felt like coming home to a world of beauty and deep sustenance.
Where to start?
The lovingly restored house? The delightfully furnished rooms? The sense of generosity and ease?
Yes, all these were the crucible of enchantment which held the gems.... and yet it was Bev & Gordon themselves and the amazingly delicious delight with which they served the breakfasts - feasts of colour and taste, nourishing to the body, the soul, the eyes - that were the things which took our breath away and filled us with such joy at the start of each day.
And so much more. Not only the way both opened themselves to us and then quietly withdrew (with skill and compassion) inviting us to share their space in freedom, but that intangible sense of received grace which held us smilingly as we went about our days. What more can one ask?!
Thank you from the depths of our hearts!
