My review is a long time coming. We actually one of the very first visitors to stay at Joan & Simon's lovely Lily Pad. We intially booked at the next door B&B , & they were fully booked, so the lady gave me Joans number, bcos at the time they didnt even have the webpage up. When we arrived at darwin airport, Joan was waiting for us, whisked us away, not even 10 mins and we arrived at 2am. She is the most unassuming sweetest lady you will ever meet. And a great artist too ! Both Joan & hubby Simon (lovely man with Russian heratige), were there ....but not there , if that makes sense. You felt like you had the whole place to yourself. The apartment under their house is so cute & cosy...and CLEAN. beautiful linen & comfy bed. Every little thought has gone into the set up. maps, sewing kit, the kitchen had EVERYTHING to whip up your own meals if you liked. Bikes to ride. The pool....gorgeous. The garden, tropical wonderland. Out doorsy bali type bathroom. Fresh honey, museli, delicious bacon, homegrown tomaotes to cook your own breakie. I could go on forever. in all.....dont waste time ....book here, you will NOT be dissapointed . Thanks Joan ;-) Maryanne & Tony Vic.
