                                                              This forest oasis was easy to find, clean and well-maintained with friendly, helpful hosts. The restaurant suggested, at our request, was excellent and nearby in Sydney by the Sea. We arrived early in the morning and spent the day in Beacon Hill Park (in Victoria by the ocean) strolling the numerous paths and admiring the gorgeous flowers. We would definitely recommend this suite!
