    I like the four poster bed even if it doesn't have curtains. It looks so modern and very relaxing too. I just suggest you get on some colorful and stylish curtains or blinds from beachsidecurtains.com.au to add decor to your room.

    The Blackberry Farm gets my vote as well. That nice relaxing feel is just irresistible to me. The part where there is lush forest right outside only adds to the appeal.
