AAA Inspector Notes
Serenely situated just steps from the Indian River in a quaint residential neighborhood, this property offers an upscale seclusion unlike any other in the area. The Spanish-style architecture of the exterior offers a striking first impression as you arrive to the property. Towering trees wrap around and shade much of the exterior. As you open the front door it may feel as if you just stepped into a hotel on Miami Beach. Vintage furnishings, elaborate designs, glass flooring and the use of cypress pine aid in illustrating the definition of boutique. The open kitchen is to the south and affords you a view of your breakfast being perfected by the executive chef each morning. The guest rooms vary in size and layout, but all feature a decor that reflects an upscale style and appeal. Luxurious bed linens, custom light fixtures, jetted tubs, flat panel televisions, iPod alarm clocks, bathrobes and ample space are just some of the highlights of your room. Nearly every room offers a view of the Indian River! Smoke free premises. 14 units. 3 stories (no elevator), interior/exterior corridors. Accessibility (Call).

Pros: Sheila and her partner were so welcoming when we arrived, even though we were much too early. Our room was lovely and the bed so comfortable and breakfast was delicious.
Cons: We are trying to think of something negative to say, but can't. It was perfect!

Pros: The room was good and very clean. Quality of furniture and equipment in the room and towels and other stuff in the bathroom exceeded my expectations for this category of a hotel. The staff (and the owner) were extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel is located in close proximity to some excellent restaurants.
