Plantation House is a lovely property, secluded but still very close to the beach, pier and restaurants. The hosts are friendly but respectful of your privacy as well. Charles is a fabulous cook and I would highly recommend ordering breakfast. Great attention to detail and the room was clean and comfortable. There is a gorgeous outdoor seating area with a... More

We spent two nights here in the Havana Suite and couldn't fault it. Plantation House is an easy walk to the beach, pier and shops, and is situated in a quiet street. The hot springs are a short drive away, and we spent a lovely Sunday using the food and wine map to explore the peninsula. A visit to Heronswood... More

Thank you for your review. The New Havana is a really comfortable suite and has everything that you might want. Plantation House is like a little oasis, only one street back from Whitcliffs beach (Rye) and is well situated to take in the sites of the Peninsula. Thank you once again. More

We stayed in the upstairs room, self contained with a gorgeous ensuite. It felt separate to the rest of the house, nice and quiet and very relaxing.

Stayed in the upstairs suite and were thoroughly pleased. Everything seemed very clean. Nice little touches such as chocolates next to the bed, fresh sweets on the bench. Everything that we needed was never a problem. Charlie and his wife love what they do and this transferred into excellent service.

After reading the reviews on Tripadvisor the B& B was exactly how it was described. The Havana room was perfect and the breakfast out of this world. Definitely need to go back for the wonderful breakfast and courtesy of owners.
