    Great location, we ate overlooking the ocean and at night marveled at the stars. Theo was a gracious host who was able to strike the difficult balance between being present and at the same time allowing us our space. Theanks Theo!

  • We enjoyed our 2 night stay

    We enjoyed our 2 night stay. The room was very clean, tidy and had everything we needed. The BBQ was easy to use and the outdoor area was lovely. Beautiful sunsets and view out over the harbour. Unfortunately for us the view was mostly mud due to low tides and we were unable to take the kayak out. The only downside was the heat, the room holds the afternoon sun and despite having 2 fans on and the doors wide open we were hot and uncomfortable. An air con unit would have meant we were more comfortable. Overall a great stay.

  • This is a lovely spot

    This is a lovely spot. We found the accommodation more spacious then expected from the photos and we were very comfortable and enjoyed our stay. Thank you for the chocolate treats too, a nice surprise. We would stay again and would happily recommend.
