Official Grading:


As soon as you drive towards The Leaves Exclusive Guest House, you get a feeling of what to expect.  Bright, light, clean and airy.  The pavement is alive with colourful plants and this welcome extends to every corner of the five guest rooms.  Each one is individually decorated each of them in an unfussy, elegant and comfortable way.

Each of the 5 rooms has:

  • air-conditioning
  • satellite TV
  • safe
  • bar fridge
  • tea & coffee tray
  • bath with separate walk-in shower
  • wi-fi internet
  • own private patio opening onto a tranquil garden
  • 4 of the rooms have a garden atrium opening off the bathroom - which makes for a special bathing experience

The garden gives off a sense of peace and tranquillity.  There are tall, shady trees, a soothing water feature and the sound of birds calling.  It's the perfect place to enjoy a tall, cool drink at the end of a busy day. Or take a dip in the sunny pool.

It's the thoughtful little touches that matter ... like gorgeous toiletries ... and a decanter with sherry & glasses ...
