Spacious and safe; the house and property are beautiful. Joice was very welcoming and attentive. Full breakfast was excellent. The street can be busy and noisy at times but did not detract from the property.

Excellent Service, Majestic Property
What an Incredible Stay! Thank You very much to Joice and the team for making it such a special time. I sent a list of little extras that could make our stay even better like better Wifi, a table or shelf in the bathroom and an extra little cupboard for snacks. But an incredible stay at a Majestic Property I look forward to many returns back here
