Owner Mark Steele puts Zen-like elegance and creative soul into every detail of this secluded boutique hotel. Touches include natural soaps in the bath, the tinkling of the grand piano in the bar, and delicious, freshly prepared food. Homemade marmalade, bread, and yogurt and a nightly dinner ($38 which includes taxes), which must be reserved in advance, are served on a lovely patio. All rooms are extra spacious and have verandahs with ocean views. It is a place for quiet
walks in the citrus and spice gardens or a hike along the Richmond River.
