We spent 2 weeks here in February in Bougainvillea. The weather was warm enough to sit out and enjoy about 1/3rd of our time, so we made good use of our hired car. I do recommend using the local firm suggested by Sheila, TRC. Our cottage was once the stables for horses, and the high ceilings and limited windows would be ideal in hot weather. Both inside and out in the gardens everything has been done with great taste. One is quite aware of the fellow guests, but there is always somewhere to sit outside if one does not want to join others. You should be aware that there are quite steep steps to negotiate, so not ideal for those with mobility problems. One feature of " our" cottage is that it has a dining table for 6, very useful if you are going with friends staying in other cottages. My wife made good use of the BBQ. Sheila's cooking is excellent, and a treat to look forward to if you get back tired after a long day.
There is good walking from the door, although you have to be prepared for " ups and downs" as the trails tend to cut across steep gullies. Others have mentioned the barking dogs, often a feature of such places.
Sheila and Ray are outstanding hosts, and one leaves thinking how soon will it be possible to go back again..
