I am a easy going, nature loving person. I am self employed as a qualified hairdresser and massage therapist. I work full time but run the b and b with my husband Michael as a side interest and retirement plan for the future. One day I hope to retire and spend my day cooking breakfast for guests and then having time to spend in the garden. We love to camp out in the bush and go fishing whenever we get the chance.
We tend to leave our guests to enjoy the peace and privacy. We usually introduce ourselves if we are around when the guests arrive, otherwise we are always on hand nearby for any needs or questions, but we like to let people unwind and relax and enjoy their privacy.
