We arrived just in time to watch the sun paint a red, orange and purple sunset over the Kromme River. We sat and enjoyed the awesome view from the deck outside our room at I-Lollo. What a treat.
I-Lollo is set in a quiet cul-de-sac next to the river and just across from the beach. It is also one row down from the canals. The room was clean, comfortable and nicely decorated and the views and peacefulness are superb.
Anne and Rob are great hosts and made us feel comfortable and welcome immediately. They were both lovely with our two young children too. Anne recommended some local restaurants for dinner and gave us a helpful map. We chose the fish option called Christies Catch which was perfect - relaxed with good sushi and friendly service.
The breakfast was delicious! It was served in a lovely sunny downstairs dining room with access onto the garden and next to the 2 downstairs bedrooms.
A great spot to stay in St Francis. Thank you for having us!
