. "THE BEST B&B I've ever stayed in for a long time. I was impressed by the look of the building, then Tina and John greeted us and made us feel very welcome. They showed us our room and it was beautiful. Breakfast was amazing the presentation and the food was full of surprises it was like having your breakfast in a 5 star hotel - I think this is even better. Tina and John such a nice couple and they are very helpful at all times and they know the area very well so they can give you lots of good tips on where to go and see if you are looking for something to do during your stay. Overall if anyone is looking for a romantic get away or somewhere to relax this is the place. You can be as active as you want or just relax and chill out." - Trip Advisor - 4 Jan 10

Online reviews: "AMAZING It was a great weekend away and exactly what we needed. By far the best hospitality of any B&B we have stayed at, John and Tina made us feel welcomed (without overcrowding us). They were very helpful; providing suggestions for things to do/places to eat and kindly arranged kayaks, dinner reservations etc for us. The mermaid room was very romantic! I loved the shower and double spa and of course the food was divine! I would definitely recommend staying at Christina's, you will love it!" - Trip Advisor - 24 Nov 09

"GORGEOUS B&B I can't quite figure out what the best part of the B & B was, but the owners have certainly added plenty of little perks which had made the experience a very special one indeed. The breakfast was absolutely delicious and when we opted to dine in one night, we were pleasantly surprised to be treated to a scrumptious meal that was even better than what we had in a local restaurant the night before. The decent range of DVDs and complimentary night cap in the common room were also some very special touches. We stayed in the Mermaid room which had a spacious double spa and a separate shower area which were both very clean (and I can be quite picky when it comes to cleanliness!). The property is beautifully designed and decorated, and is a true hidden gem within a short drive from metropolitan Sydney. We'll definitely be back!" Trip Advisor - 8 Nov 09 CONDITIONS
