            We used Carter's Lodge as a place to rest our heads while exploring the area. We were accommodated brilliantly. The facilities are great for those just wishing to pass through or those needing to settle in for a stay. Our room was spacious and clean, we had private parking right outside our door and were able to come and go as we pleased.

We truly enjoyed our stay and felt welcome from the minute we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised by the carafe of sherry. The owner and staff went out of their way to make our stay unforgettable. The scrambled eggs were the best we've had! The garden is lovely and create a tranquility whilst enjoying the home cooked breakfast!

            Location, staff and food.

            We had a most enjoyable stay. Located beside La Lucia Mall and a 5 minute drive to Gateway. The owner and her staff provide a great service. Highly recommended.

            Carters Lodge - замечательное место как для отдыха, так и для деловой поездки. В комнате есть все необходимое, возможность пользования микроволновой печью и посудой превращает номер практически в апартаменты. Доброжелательность, отзывчивость хозяев и персонала погружают Вас в семейную атмосферу. Уютный и красивый внутренний дворик с ландшафтным бассейном позволяет максимально расслабиться. Вечером двор наполняется ароматами цветущих растений. В шаговой доступности находится гипермолл, где можно купить все необходимое, перекусить в кафе, приобрести готовые блюда. До океана - минут 20 прогулочным шагом по красивой дороге. Если одним словом, - ВЕЛИКОЛЕПНО!
