Beautiful property and amazing staff.
Absolutely gorgeous property! I stayed here with a couple of friends and it was amazing. The location is perfect, you are able to walk about the town, and visit wonderful restaurants, shops and galleries. The rooms are super clean and spacious. But the staff were the highlight of the stay...they could not have been more helpful and pleasant! They went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and ensure we had everything we needed to have the best visit possible. I highly recommend the Leeu House. You won't regret it!
