We really needed a short break for some rest and relaxation. Tropical Escape was it - peace and serenity. Refreshed after a few days doing absolutely nothing - my lovely wife and I returned to face work, kids, grandkids and all the usual stresses. Thank you Dot and Noel - we wil definitely be back when the opportunity surfaces.

We stayed a long time ago in this B&B. Now we are back again and again we fall in love with this beautiful remote place with their warm hearted owners. Good beds, great showers, excellent breakfasts and if you have special wishes the owners try to forfill them for you. Thank you so much! Hans and Betteke from Holland

Where to begin....this is a B&B?? Far superior to many 4* hotels I've stayed in. This is so much more than a B&B, Dot and Noel, the hosts, are so kind and go out of their way to make sure their guests have everything and anything they need or want. As soon as you walk in, the guest lounge is...

Stayed four nights and felt very much at home. Beautifully property with large comfortable bedrooms and guest lounge area. Dot and Noel certainly went the extra mile to ensure the comfort of their guests. All the little extras made a difference. Great breakfasts, cooked to order by Dot. Hope to stay again.
