A nice home in a residential suburban location. The home, with full access to all amenities, is very comfortable and well maintained. The hosts are exceptional and offer many transportation and sightseeing options (which they lead themselves).

My husband, cousins and I stayed at the Mission B and B in March 2016. The rooms were homey and comfortable, and Simon and Wendy, the owners, were absolutely wonderful. They made great suggestions about activities and wineries, helped us book a "Bums in Seats" wine tour, and sent us off with a wonderful, wonderful breakfast every morning.
