"This 10-room inn, on a quiet hillside 600 feet above the shoreline, is like a family-run New England B&B that's been plopped among palms and bamboo."
"With only 10 rooms, some overlooking the sea and all with views of lush hillsides, Mocking Bird Hill is much more like a cozy bed-and-breakfast than a hotel." Full review
Travel + Leisure
