  • The location can't be beaten

    The location can't be beaten. It's stunning and peaceful. A magical outlook on a typical East Coast sea/landscape. The locals seemed friendly too. Reef Cottage is a charming traditional bach with lovely beachy decor right on the beachfront. Pet friendly was the deciding factor on booking Reef Cottage, however the beach needs better signage alerting dog owners to the presence of dotterals. Mattress in 2nd bedroom was quite hard. Probably should be replaced given the per night rate.

  • Paradise

    Paradise. The new girlfriend was very impressed with my choice :-) The weather couldn't have been worse, but we'll definitely be back in summer to make the most of the beach. If you read a bad comment about this place, the author is likely to be a raving lunatic, so pay it no attention.
