Avocado Grove B&B
Ranked #1 of 5 Flaxton B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 April 2013

We came across Avocado Grove after searching on line for a pet friendly B&B around Montville/Flaxton area. Despite dropping the kids to the Grandparents, we had a small dog in tow. We read that small dogs were allowed downstairs in the Sharwil Suite with prior approval. A phone call to the owners John & Sonya confirmed we could stay 2 nights over the Easter holidays.

The suite was perfect for our needs as it has direct access to the well maintained gardens. The room has a potbelly stove, fridge, tea/coffee provisons and sitting area with TV (with good selection of recent dvds). The room is spacious with a good sized ensuite, and in keeping with the high standard fluffy robes and white towels are available. We had a delicious cooked breakfast that was served on the patio overlooking the Grove on the Saturday morning. Rather than not accommodate our request for 2 nights (owners had a prior arrangement in Brisbane) we were able to stay a second night and provided with the provisions for our breakfast in our unit’s fridge. We were very happy with this arrangement.

We can recommend Marsha’s Sweets Granola that is served with yoghurt at breakfast – it was delicious and we raved about it so much that John gave us a packet to bring home. We have since ordered more online (John and Sonya’s daughter Marsha makes it).

We recently had a 3 night stay at this unique B&B. It's location was excellent and the views from the back deck were lovely. Our hosts John & Sonya were very friendly and helpful with nothing being too much trouble. Our room was clean and comfortable. We looked forward to being greeted every morning to a delicious breakfast more than enough to tie us over til lunchtime. We are hoping one day to go back and enjoy this wonderful place again.

We have just returned from a mid-week two-night get-away. The most remarkable aspect of our visit was the friendly hospitality - and the amazing food! Our room was comfortable, clean and well-appointed. The views over the valley were an ever-changing delight. We just had a wonderful, recuperative, enjoyable time. Thanks again!!

This was our second trip there. The first time was amazing, and the second was nothing short of it as well. What they do there really changed my perception of the B&B. Their accommodation is clean and well equipped, meals provided definitely compete with the finest hotels' buffets i stayed in around the world. I am very impressed that despite it being our 2nd visit, they were really on time in their meal preparation. They take their work seriously and definitely were not complacent. I truly believe they deserve their award recently awarded to them by trip advisor.

If you have forgotten what good old fashioned friendly hospitality and service is........do yourself a favour ........spend a little time with Sonya and John. Nothing is too much trouble.
Make sure you have dinner on the deck...........a lovely menu with fresh produce (and the most delicious Caribbean Sweet Potato Soup!)
Don't know where else you would get a home made croissant for breakfast, that is seriously better than any I have had in France!
We had a lovely Easter Break ....................I was impressed!

Wow, receiving reviews from our guests is always fantastic, but to receive a review from one of our peers is the ultimate. We enjoyed making Easter special for everyone that stayed at the Grove. Gena and Garth thank you so much.

We stayed one night in February 2012 and it was fantastic so i wrote a review. This time we were fortunate to stay 2 nights and NO rose-coloured glasses for this review, the service surpassed everything that i remembered. From the delightful quiet location, the genuine friendly and welcoming service, John & Sonya do a magnificent job and we would go back again. Their attitude of nothing is too much trouble, the magnificent breakfasts on the verandah overlooking the valley, the comfortable rooms, the little things that make your stay that bit more special, intelligent conversation, their local knowledge of places to go and restaurants to visit, make each day seem much longer and more enjoyable. As John says "if you don't like people then you shouldn't be in this business" shines through and validates the awards Avocado Grove have received. John & Sonya cooked our evening meal on Good Friday and it would surpass many restaurants. Easter Sunday breakfast was complete with an Easter Bunny sitting on our plates welcoming us! So...do yourself a favour and experience Avocado Grove!

Thank you Sonya & John, you made this weekend very special.

cheers
eleanor & John

What a wonderful experience when we chanced on John and Sonja at the avocado grove. From one of many possible places to stay in the area we were fortunate enough to choose this lovely sited home from home. We were made to feel immediately welcome and special by two people who make a difficult job apparently very easy. The rooms are nicely appointed and the terrace where a superb breakfast is served has a wonderful view of the amazing scenery.
