The Peninsula Retreat was beautiful and had everything one could ask for. Trish does an excellent job of hosting and couldn't have been more helpful with advice for sightseeing the area. We enjoyed the pool after a long day of traveling and decided to eat in as the view outside our doors was too good to leave! Thank you, Trish... More
