We spent two nights in this very nice accomodation. The room was big, clean and there were some good additional touches like two large bottles of free mineral water. The outside areas are lovely as is the garden. Breakfast was good and plentiful and the evening meal also well cooked and filling. Cynthia has a very good staff who have been with her for a long time and the place is well run by the team there.
The ambience is Sunnyside is quiet, serene and peaceful. It is a Christian establishment though all are quite clearly made welcome. There are no TV's or radios or any music so the tone is quite hushed and one almost feels the need to whisper. All that is very relaxing if it suits your holiday style.
The home is also a no smoking and no alcohol establishment and there are signs on each door asking guests to refrain. That is perfectly fine, though we do feel that this should be made very clear to guests in advance on the home page of the web site, which it is not, though some of the links to newspaper articles do mention it.
Overall we could not fault the accomodation, food, setting or help we were given. It was however, a slightly monastic experience that might not suit everyone.
