Beyond all expectations -- a hidden, romantic gem
Posted Oct 28, 2016
Owners Theo and Jenny have built a wonderful intimate high quality boutique hotel, converted from a too-big house. They made us feel at home from the moment we walked in the door, and their service exceeded our expectations.
For example, because we had to catch an early 7:20am ferry and would miss breakfast, they packed us juice and sandwiches for the boat ride.
The room was spotless, very comfortable and airy, with excellent cross-ventilation; so good, it occasionally slammed a door. Another surprise was returning from a hike to see our bath towel sitting on the bed folded like a swan, origami-style.
Their breakfast was amazing.
Chef-food-artist Theo learned from his mother and his family bakery. Magnificently creative and delectable breakfast including curried pumpkin soup (in a glass), fried egg over pulpy greens on toast, creamy tabouli salad, strawberry jello, homemade fennel bread with orange-lemon-pergomenni ? jam, chocolate banana crepe crowned with pistachios, and the sweetest green grapes ever!
Perfect preparation for a leisurely refreshing and contemplative
Seaside views inspire meditation and realizations, nourishing the soul.
