We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Richard and Carole. What a shame that we only spent one night with them, though. We arrived very late, after a long drive. It was so nice to be welcomed into such a lovely and spacious home.
Our room was impeccable, every detail was perfect, and we even found flowers on the pillows and chocolates next to the bed! There was a spacious balcony, and, as we discovered the next morning, the view is incredible. The house is in a very private setting.
Guests have access to a large part of the house, including a kitchen area and two living areas. And there is an inviting swimming pool as well.
Breakfast was incredible. So many good things to choose from!!! I'm lactose intolerant, and Carole went out of her way to make dairy-free muffins. And she even gave us some to take along when we left. Wow, did I ever have fond thoughts of Carole and Richard when I ate those the next day!
We also really enjoyed talking with both Carole and Richard. They have had interesting lives, and they are very warm people. Richard gave us all sorts of advice on what to see on our way to our next destination - he even drew us a map that turned out to be perfect.
We truly enjoyed our stay. Compared to other B&Bs, Eden House is very well-priced, given their exceptional accommodations and breakfast.
