Where else are you welcomed by name? Even though I arrive about 6 hours early, they still knew who I was. Pat made a cup of coffee while Keith asked if I needed my laundry done. He remembered my inquiry when I had booked weeks before. Impressive!
Pat took me in the car so I could get groceries and take away.
The next morning I had an early flight and figured with my luck my alarm would not go off.
Keith got up at 4 a.m. to make sure I was up and then waited for my taxi to arrive. He also called to locate the taxi.
This is the kind of personal service I don't think I could find again.
The place is clean and peaceful with a beautiful garden and pool. They even have a view of the Indian Ocean if the trees do not obstruct it now.
I can't imagine finding a nicer pair of people!!
