              Pretty spot right on the river-lagoon. Friendly and helpful owners with a great breakfast. Will stay here again.

              I would recommend Purple Heron. We had a lovely stay. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating.  The breakfast was 5 star quality. The rooms were clean and neat. Best of all is the location, it's quiet and adjacent to the lagoon.Katrien

              A lovely getaway from it all kind of place. Our hosts were kind, welcoming, helpful and unobtrusive. The breakfast each morning was delicious and varied and they made a special effort to accommodate our children's requests which was so appreciated. Our room was lovely with fine linen and special soap in the bathroom. And the location was gorgeous with unobstructed views across the lagoon. All in all highly recommended!

              Thank you, Jenny and Paul for being tremendous hosts in such a glorious place! Our tandem trip to this amazing spot was a real delight.
