    Thanks for your review. You noted the peace and quiet. When overseas recently, we missed that peacefulness. We stayed at motels, motorcamps, boutique bnb and hotels - all noisy. It's true. We need to leave home to appreciate home! We understand our Guests like and need the tranquility too:)

    It's all in a name- Bush Sand and Sea- we are in the bush, look out over the sand dunes and then out to the sea. Glad you liked us! Hope all else will go well for your trip, regards, Lyn

  • This place is amazing

    This place is amazing. Never thought I'd say it, but a real 'home-from-home'. Private and very comfortable, Lyn and Alan have thought of everything. The layout of the rooms are excellent, with beautiful views in the stunning surrounding bush. They have created a lovely bush-walk down the valley on their land to the stream. At dusk and had fun watching the glow-bugs emerge. Very easy to get to wonderful nearby beaches. Music and food at Bethell's beach was a wonderful introduction. Thank you.
