We had a wonderful time staying at Shelbourne Villa. Val and Wayne were excellent hosts. Our large room was beautiful 10/10, the bed was comfortable, and although we were staying in a house we had total privacy. It was my first experience of a B&B and I would totally recommend this accommodation. Val and Wayne thank you so much.
