We stayed here for two nights as part of our three week discovery of the "real" Florida. On arrival our welcome from the owner was excellent and our accommodation in the converted cart shed/stables at the back was full of character although a little claustrophobic. A small tent attached to the stables was the smokers area which was not too pleasant. Overall the accommodation was clean and tidy - very difficult in an old property with so many trinkets about. The location was excellent- quiet road and few minutes walk to the centre of the action. However, it was the breakfasts and attitude that really let down this property. Our expectations, for the money paid and the "adverts", was for something really up market and different ("gourmet breakfasts" were advertised). The first morning breakfast was basically an individual quiche, orange juice and coffee - nothing special - served by a person who was not all communicative. We had to ask for some jam to go with the bread - this was scrapped from the last of a jar and brought out rather unwillingly - others then asked for jam but there was none left. The next morning's breakfast, prepared and served by the owner, was a disaster - Belgian waffles and not much else - several guests couldn't eat them - they were burnt - an added factor was that several guests requested an early breakfast but this was not accommodated. There was a deathly hush in the breakfast room and lots of unhappy faces...the coffee urn had run out of coffee and my wife asked for a top up - long face and unhelpful attitude. Overall this was not the experience we expected from a B & B that markets itself so highly....poor value for money
