This is a lovely property, and even lovelier owner. When we pulled up there was a line of 700 cows walking right in front of us going to get milked for the day. Awesome breakfast and you have to go to the Beach Bar for dinner. It has an awesome small town, local feel to it. You won't be disappointed. I highly recommend.

Great stay! The room was clean and cozy for a one night stay. I loved having cows right outside our window. Mary and her daughter were very helpful in recommending things to do and places to see both in the area and as we continued our trip.

Die guten Dinge zuerst: Die Zimmer waren großzügig, gemütlich und das Frühstück - freundlich serviert von einer der Töchter der Familie - war lecker. So bekamen wir das Gefühl, evtl. doch noch willkommene Gäste zu sein... Die Ankunft am vorherigen Tag war allerdings ein Schock: Müde nach einem langen Reisetag, wurden wir recht unfreundlich von Chefin Mary empfangen, beinahe kamen wir uns vor wie arme Studenten, die um Arbeit baten. In fast schon militärischem Ton wurden wir aufgefordert, innerhalb kurzer Zeit, am besten im Stehen, zu bezahlen und unsere Frühstückswünsche zu äußern. Abweichungen vom Menü wurden knurrend mit "das ist nicht normal" kommentiert. Nachdem wir auch noch beobachtet hatten, WIE die 700 Kühe der Farm behandelt wurden, war uns klar - hierher werden wir nicht zurückkehren. The good things first: The rooms were spacious, comfortable and the breakfast - kindly served by one of the daughters of the family - was delicious. So we got the feeling that we might be welcome guests after all.... The arrival on the previous day, however, was a shock: Tired after a long day of travelling, we were received quite unfriendly by boss Mary, almost feeling like poor students asking for work. In an almost military tone, we were asked to pay within a short time, preferably standing up, and to express our breakfast wishes. Deviations from the menu were snarlingly commented with "that's not normal". After we had also observed HOW the farm's 700 cows were treated, it was clear to us - we will not return here.
