  • Absolutely stunning property. Ruben gave us a tour of his home which he and his wife have lovingly restored . They have given lots of detailed attention to each and every aspect while restoring this heritage property. The oyster shell window panes , the furniture , the gardens to mention a few. His wife cooked a fabulous seven course lunch and each one was a delightful culinary experience.Ruben and his wife are wonderful hosts. We will definitely be going back.
