Our first 3 nights away without children in 10 years!! We were somewhat shell-shocked but John & Sonya took it all in their stride. We had no real need to go out and find restaurants as the food was excellent.

We chose this B&B simply because of the great Tripadviser's visitors comments and we weren't disappointed, and as expected we experienced really exceptional hospitality... we couldn't fault our stay...and as so many previous guests have commented .....John and Sonya are just the most fantastic hosts.....nothing was too much trouble. Originally we intended going out for dinner, but (luckily) we realised they offered a "simple" dinner menu... but it was nothing simple we assure you !!!!.....and worthy of any 5 star restaurant anywhere..... my wife had their yummy home made soup and then a perfectly cooked steak. I chose the salmon, and a little concerned as one of my pet hates is overcooked fish, again just perfectly cooked. As neither of us enjoy desserts we asked when booking if some cheese and biscuits would be possible.. again was it simple plastic "mass produced cheese" ???.... no way... a beautiful cheese board was presented.

Great night sleep followed by an amazing breakfast (their house special is strongly recommended) and another personal hate is badly brewed or even worse stewed coffee... again all the (3) cups were superb... my wife enjoys Earl Grey... just the standard tea bag .....no way...

Anything wrong ??? Yes !!!... perhaps a little too cheap but don't tell John and Sonya as we will be going back... it is really great to be able to give them a really great review ....they deserve every single word... don't miss this one on your travels....

We had a great stay at the Avocado Grove B&B. John and Sonya were fantastic hosts, and the accomodation was very comfortable and the breakfasts were amazing. The hospitality was excellent. We had a 6 day old baby and John and Sonya were so welcoming and made our first outing with our baby girl very special. We would highly recommend staying in this beautiful location with such lovely hosts.

Avocado Grove B&B was excellent. I stayed for 2 nights and attended a wedding at Flaxton Gardens. Sonya and John are excellent hosts and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was delicious, easily one of the best breakfasts I have had for years. The room was spacious and very well appointed, and I greatly enjoyed having breakfast on the verandah. Thank you for a wonderful stay! I will definitely be recommending Avocado Grove to others.

Gloriously situated, a Tropical wonderland with beautiful views, enchanting bird song and a feeling of peace and tranquility.
All of this was wonderfully balanced with scrumptious food, very comfortable beds and the warm and friendly, gracious hospitality of Sonja and John.
We spent a delightful 3 nights in this lovely place. I cannot recommend this B&B highly enough.

My boyfriend and I have spent 2 days (Midweek Specials) at Avocado Grove. All was even better as I have imagined, was really special. We were received with Afternoon Tea with amazing views at the veranda, then a walk through the avocado trees and a really good 3 course dinner with wine. The breakfast was delicious, abundant, very nice presented and enjoying the calm of the morning at the veranda. John & Sonya, are very good host, they make you feel very special and relaxed. We will definitely return, maybe at winter, have to be very comfortable. Maria Jose & Sam

Last weekend, my husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Avocado Grove for 2 nights. From the minute we received such a warm and friendly welcome from John and Sonya, I knew I had made the right decision to stay here. We stayed in the Sharwil suite, which was lovely and private, spacious, clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was sooo good - absolutely scrumptious! The gardens were really beautiful and the hospitality just perfect :-) John and Sonya, keep up the great work and thanks again for making our little weekend getaway one to remember. We'll definitely be telling all our friends what a special B&B you have and what amazing hosts you are.
