Everything was nearly perfect. Lovely clean, refreshing pool; Attractive room. Lovely garden. Great breakfast; Very helpful hosts. Excellent restaurant 2 doors down (Koornlands). Not quite so good for wheelchair users, I had to get out and walk on crutches in order to get in and out of the bedroom. There was a very steep driveway down to the property also.

Very nice B&B with friendly owners and staff. Rooms are not that big but big enough for my wife and myself. They have a beautiful garden with a big pool. Breakfast is more then good. We had a pleasant stay in Elianthe's and can recommend this place to others.
