Lovely clean and comfortable place.
Rose was pleasant enough, the accommodation seemed ok until I sat on the couch.
The couch was totally sunken in so I could not sit on it while I watched telly, I had to sit at the table. The following morning I looked for an Iron and could not find one, yet there was an ironing board. The coffee jar was nearly empty and the coffee in it was solid as a rock.
I left at 6am (for work) so no chance to express these things in person.
The host cancelled the booking 15 days before the arrival date.
Ian and Sue had a most relaxing and enjoyable time with Mary at the Alpaca farm. We were greeted each morning with a great breakfast, which set us up for the day. Mary was a welcoming host who showed interest in her guests, their activities and had a wealth of local knowledge to share. When we are in the area again we will certainly stay at Mary's Homestay. Thank you again, Mary.
Mary-Rose is a very nice person and a very good host. We highly recommend her service to clients of all backgrounds. We felt like with a close family member and totally enjoyed our stay. Thanks Mary-Rose.

You have a real jewel in Mary-Rose, an utterly gracious, charming and generous hostess to her palace of a home, which, aside from being spacious and immaculate, is magnificently appointed and decorated by herself. I look forward to the opportunity to return.
