Experience the Bed N Breakfast

We stayed in the Safari room and it is decorated to the hilt as well as the home. My taste is a little less, is better, but it was a nice experience.

They have thought of everything

Very pretty place. We had our breakfast each morning on the balcony overlooking the beautiful garden. Would definitely stay again.
