  • What a fabulous location

    What a fabulous location. We enjoyed the mooring, wharf and particularly using the pontoon at high tide. The house has recently been refurbished and had everything we needed plus decks with big views on both sides, enjoying all day sun. We would happily return!

    Amazing property and was perfect place for us to take our small runabout to. We managed to be able to use the pontoon around 3 hours either side of high tide to pop out for a fish or accross to the yacht club for lunch. Mansion house is an easy walk which we did most days and otherwise plenty of room at the bach to relax.

  • Great place to stay

    Great place to stay. Very tidy and modern inside with everything you need. Its great having use of the pontoon at the bottom of the track which makes bringing your gear to the house a bit easier so long as you time it right with the high tide. Would definitely stay again
