Driven out by the cold and rainy British weather Colleen and Marcus travelled the length of Australia’s East Coast to find the perfect spot to set up home… and a B&B. They knew they wanted somewhere intimate and tropical and the unassuming redbrick Boambee House with its dilapidated garden and banana plantation backdrop caught their eye for its potential.....

.... The Blackwells' experience in operating boutique hotels and restaurants and a penchant for design have transformed the property from ‘run of the mill’ to dazzling in just a couple of years. Now four acres of vibrant tropical garden and bush huddle around the 18-metre saltwater pool and finely groomed grass tennis court. It’s like a mini-resort with plenty of personality. Marcus is a supreme chef and his talents are reflected in the inspired 3-course gourmet breakfast. If you’re lucky enough to coincide your stay with his night off from the restaurant you may get the chance to indulge in a 3-course dinner as well (if not, the seafood platters and BBQ packs are also fantastic). I recommend picking a shady spot in the garden and relaxing with a book selected from the well-stocked guest library. The only noise that will interrupt you here is the playful chatter of the abundant birds. All bedrooms have their own entrances for privacy and are large and lavish. My favourite was the Emperor Suite where two people could happily sleep like starfish in the gigantic bed. Bonville International Golf Resort is just down the road.
