Otama Beach Hideaway

 Such an amazing, special place! The sunrises were incredible and the beach was unbelievably beautiful. I loved our time at Otama! 

SupaCute Chalet - Privacy, Big Sea View and Kayak

 The facility was great - clean and tidy with all needs met - great view and very relaxing private surrounds - 5 min walk down to beach - even though part of a resort complex you would think you are on a single private property - very secure/safe environment

Ohiwas' Best Bach,Clean,Cosy & Private.

 We had a fantastic weekend because the bach was so perfect, quiet, private, clean and really comfortable. We loved watching the birds and fish jumping sitting on the verandah relaxing. We came away re energised and felt the setting, the bach and the friendliness of the owners made our stay so wonderful. I have been recommending this bach to everyone. We became orthonologists, spotting 23 different bird species and bought the bird spotting book for each of our children. Hope to return. 

Romantic Sanctuary in the Bush

 Amazing! Will be returning.
