    Start unwinding as soon as you make your way up the native bush lined driveway. The Lookout is the ultimate relaxation retreat. We had the most idyllic and magical week, which we will treasure for years to come. The house has everything you need and the views are breathtaking.

    We had a wonderful week here - it was a gorgeous place for writing: comfortable, peaceful, well-equipped and a short (if steep!) walk to Tryphena and the beach. Superb.

  • The property was very nicely presented and furnished

    The property was very nicely presented and furnished. A 'home-away from home'. The garden with fresh herbs and vegetables was a nice. I admit we harvested some lettuce leaves and a nearly over mature fennel bulb; it made a beautiful fresh salad. The previous tenets were correct ion pointing out that the driveway is step and long and tested our aged team to limit. Call us lazy but we rented a 4x4 for the duration.
