  • Such an amazing spot - very private and great for relaxing

    Such an amazing spot - very private and great for relaxing. Having use of the car is a must you cant walk anywhere. The only thing I would suggest is giving guests the option of a small cheese platter or snack picnic basket as there is nothing near by. There is a breakfast option but found it to be expensive. Loved our stay we will be back.

    Stunning properties and location with heaps of room for everyone and having the little bay to ourselves was really special. We had an amazing holiday, so much to do locally and a real gem of a getaway.

  • Wow - what can I say

    Wow - what can I say. This place is an absolute hidden gem. We used the property as a location for my bridal party and I to get ready at on the day of our wedding, and the place my partner and I spent our first night together as husband and wife. The location is blissful and the cottage itself is the perfect romantic and rustic backdrop to create stunning photos. Cannot rate our experience highly enough. Thoroughly recommend.

  • What a find for us

    What a find for us. Needed to switch off the world for a few days as we needed a relaxing break to do nothing. Only distraction was the views, birds and baby quail who threw in the 'Awe' factor. Such an amazing place and such places are becoming a rarity as demands in society increase. To have no TV and power only when you wanted it made for a week of pure bliss, no stress and happy happy joy joy. Well set up and we wanted for nothing. Thanks for letting us stay.
