    The bay was beautiful and the view of it out of the living room window was breathtaking. Being able to have our dog with us was great and she loved watching all the passers by. The space on the property was brilliant too, neighbour's were not too close . Cosy and comfortable, spent most time out on the spacious deck watching the tide go in,or out.

    This was our second visit to this bach in Ngakuta Bay and it was just as amazing as we remembered. Clean, tidy, cosy and perfectly equipped for a family holiday. The location is ideal for enjoying the bay and all that it has to offer. We will definitely be back again!

  • Location was great for us

    Location was great for us. Close to Picton. Swimming in Governors Bay was magic. Nice outlook from the deck. Loved our time there. Appreciated the dog friendly status.
