Best of Broome
Posted Jul 4, 2016 on Wotif
Had we known beforehand, we would have booked this place for a week instead of just a couple of days. The ambiance and history remind one of Hemingway or tropical plantations in another world. It is of course surrounded in the history of Broome and its glorious past based on the pearling industry. The hosts and staff are most obliging, friendly and helpful. The property is beautifully maintained in a wonderful tropical garden setting. There is a bird aviary set amongst the gardens, visiting sulphur crested cockatoos and flying foxes (fruit bats) around sunset, all adding to the tropical experience. The pool is a refreshing sanctuary on a hot afternoon, and the perfect way to cool off after a day in town. Good eating can be found within a quarter of an hour walk. We were fortunate enough to be able to have an evening meal cooked by the hosts, and that alone was worth the experience. Simply stunning.
