Stayed: December 2018

Very comfortable bed, breakfast delicious and plentiful. We stayed in the chalet, very warm and cosy, also soundproofed for an excellent night's sleep. Jo and Vern are lovely people, perfect hosts, nothing is too much trouble, we felt at home straight away and didn't regret for one second choosing Everglades.
