Private Bush Retreat

 Lovely bach, secluded, peaceful and friendly owner. Great place to relax, unwind and enjoy the region. 

Luxury Accommodation for 2

 Very peaceful and pleasant. Fab design and decor of chalet. Not on waters edge as I would like for perfection but short walk to excellent beach. I definitely recommend it. 

Private Bush Retreat

 Blissful. Has to be the best bathroom I have ever had the joy of bathing in. 

Secluded private chalet

 A perfect bach. Well-provided and very comfortable. Beautiful views of the mountains, and fantastic star-gazing on a clear night. Highly recommended! 

SupaCute Chalet - Privacy, Big Sea View and Kayak

 Lovely place to stay so cute with an amazing view 

Luxury Accommodation for 2

 Apart from our comments in the feedback section, a stroll to the Amokura (originally HMSS Sparrow) wreck is well worthwhile. It is an 1880's Scottish built steam sailor, captained at one point by Frank Worsley or Shackleton expedition distinction.
