“Never again will you be transported into a space that speaks primarily to the soul..on every level and in so many ways. The attention to detail and thoughtfulness is incredible. The garden beautifully put together like little sculptures.. Thank you, for such a magical experience, removed from all the sterility that we have all become accustomed to. What you have created, is a little patch of heaven. So special...


You and your space blew our minds... What an incredible collaboration of colours textures thoughtfulness and love... We will come back a thousand times.”

Festina Lente never ends to please and add a sense of delight. I experienced the absolute joy of the Delft Penthouse on my latest stay and came away breathless. Elna has once again created a piece of paradise with impeccable attention to detail and incredible style. Thank you Elna, you know I will be back.

“ The perfect garden stay-over in Hurlingham

The guesthouse which took over 100 hundred years to build... The facilities and interior decor are magnificent but what truly blows your mind is the garden. The focal point is a grand oak tree which is clearly over

100 years old. She towers over the large front garden creating a shaded oasis under her bows. The garden is immaculate and adds to the grace and elegance of this accommodation gem. The breakfast is superb. There are fine touches everywhere. French table linen, quality coffee and Elna's personal attention to detail make this a 10/10 experience.”
