In a nutshell, The Nutshell is a homely yet extraordinary experience. The en-suite rooms are all spaciously elegant with a touch of class. Overlooking a crystal pool, the rooms are nestled in a canopied garden of beautiful trees. Paired with most intimate service by the on-site owner-manager, this is truly a haven for the extraordinary and even the slightly nutty.

The room was beautifully furnished with quality linen and very spacious. The hostess was awesome and even went and got take away food when we arrived late in the evening. There was safe indoor parking available for our whole group.
