We just had an amazing couple of days away at the Big Blue Backyard. What can I say that hasn't already been said ad nauseum?
The setting is simply stunning. By day it shimmers with rugged coastal beauty. Sunset gives way to a night of perfect darkness, the silence and serenity. I don't think I've slept so peacefully in ages.
The rooms are gorgeous - tastefully decked out, immaculately clean, luxurious, comfortable... basically everything you could want in a room.
Lisa and Paul are fantastic hosts. They are both friendly, helpful and great fun to chat with. They're always there when you need them, but never intrusive. And then there is their cooking. World class, homey food - no culinary fads, no showing off just incredibly tasty, well thought out meals. We had two breakfasts and two dinners there and were blown away by everything we ate. If I could drive up every day just to eat, I would.
It's hard to classify BBBY. It's much more than a B&B - it really is a home away from home on the Peninsula. I can't wait to go back!
