Owner's reply: Thank you Sharon for your feedback - It's always valuable to hear back from our guests. When we decided to share our island home we asked both our gallery visitors and B&B owners: "What makes a great B&B?". From their responses we decided that elegant beauty, privacy and the ability to have a simple healthy breakfast at any time was desired. So our website and letter of confirmation both list the food choices that we provide for our guests, and mention our special welcome treat - freshly baked pastries, at least two kinds for each person, the first morning. Our approach has been very well received. Guests rarely request clean towels for shorter stays, but when requested we are always happy to provide them. Cobwebs are never acceptable and we thank you for helping us to do a better job in that regard. We feel badly because it always gives us great pleasure when our guests are so happy and have such a wonderful time at Bloom that they long to return.
