Having spent the last 7 days touring the coast and staying at a different venue every night, we pulled into snug coves driveway and I was expecting a similar run of the mill B & B experience similar to those of the last 6 evenings, HOWEVER upon meeting Eric and Jennifer just shortly before being invited into their beautiful home I knew that our stay here was going to be one that we will treasure. The rooms are a welcome change, each with a small balcony with uninterrupted views of the bay, bathroom boasted a double shower and large deep corner bath.
We were invited onto the lower deck (still will uninterrupted views of the bay) at 5.00pm for a complementary glass of wine or beer, which was accompanied by some nibbles in the form of olives and some cheese and crackers.
Eric and Jennifer were very friendly and and helpful without being intrusive. During breakfast I overheard them providing information to the couple on the table next with the same passion and genuine enthusiasm that they had displayed to us when educating us on the local area and activities.
Again breakfast was delightful and there was a lot of love on the table from the fresh fruit salad, to the eggs and bacon and running over into the well served tea and accompaniments.
If we were in the area again we would stay there without a shadow of a doubt!

P.s we only marked a 4 for the room as there wasn't air conditioning, there was however a fan which did the job perfectly.
