- Landsborough,


Loved our stay at Close Encounters B&B. The views and the garden are lovely and the room meticulously appointed and spotless. The hosts John and Nell were really welcoming and friendly. Fantastic spot for a short break.

- Adelaide,


What a wonderful way to share our 48th Wedding Anniversary in this 5 Star accommodation. The attention to detail is always what draws us back as a repeat customer. The floral arrangements are stunning, the standard of cleanliness is awesome, and the provisions always exceed expectation. As cleaners, we appreciate the attention to detail. We had no reason to go shopping other than for take-away meals. Yeah! John & Nell are excellent hosts and are never too busy to have a friendly chat. We spent many hours on the front setting enjoying the views and the location. The quietness was something special to experience

- Adelaide,


Our 30th Wedding Anniversary was always going to be at Close Encounters after 2 wonderful previous visits. As usual our stay exceeded our expectations. John & Nell are the nicest people and wonderful hosts. Nell’s attention to detail is amazing. 2 lovely bouquets of roses fresh from the garden was a lovely touch, as was the lovely Anniversary card. The B & B is spotlessly clean, includes quality breakfast provisions and everything you could possibly want to make your stay unforgettable. Everything about this B & B is 1st class and sets standards very few if any get close to matching. Looking for a special place to stay, look know further this is as good as it gets! Thank you John & Nell we can’t wait to return for another stay in paradise.

A lovely B & B with everything you could possible want and more. The cleanliness was outstanding, very comfy bed and lovely fresh provisions. Huge bathroom with a large spa and all your toiletries catered for. Fantastic selection of books, games, magazines, CD's and DVD's to entertain and with another tv in the second bedroom, all guests can be happy!!! Add to all of this the lovely view over the garden to the hills and the sea make this a lovely place to stay. There is bird life and we even saw a bunny hopping around. We celebrated our 40th Wedding Anniversary here and the owners left us a lovely card as a nice touch. We also liked the fact that John and Nell are eco minded with recycling and composting. The home grown tomatoes were delicious. Thankyou John and Nell for a lovely stay and your B & B is a credit to you. We look forward to staying again in the future.
