                      Everything was perfect. Colleen welcomed us and allowed us to check in earlier. She was so helpful with giving us directions and tourist attractions to visit. The breakfast was top class! Colleen and her husband were both very helpful and constantly making sure we were not bored. Wish we could have stayed with them longer. I will definitely return to their Guest House any day!!!
