~ Koru Cottage ~ Romantic Riverside Hideaway

 The location, the spa pool, the facilities, the river - pretty much everything! 

Grace Cottage: Private retreat overlooking Bay

 This is a very cute cottage with nice sea views. There were lots of native birds around & it was a very relaxing place to be. The driveway is very steep but easy enough to drive up and down. The beach is about 5 min walk away & is quite nice. There was no cell phone reception in the house but not a big issue. We didn't use the kayaks but the bay would be nice to kayak around. We would stay there again. 

Chichley Lodge - The Ultimate Romantic Getaway !!

 A sweet, secluded hideaway with a stunning view. And wonderful that we could take our dog! 

'Time Out'  Beach Front getaway with amazing views

 Perfect for getting away and relaxing. No cell phone coverage which is a bonus in terms of forced break from internet and all it's distractions. Suitable for couple or family groups. Good quality furnishings etc and everything you need for a home away from home. Very short walk to the beach and amazing coastline to explore at low tide. Quite a trip out to the Coast but well worth it.
