  • Great location if you are attending a wedding at Fountain Gardens

    Great location if you are attending a wedding at Fountain Gardens. I was a bit worried when we drove by 3 months earlier and saw that the owners were just a few metres away, but this was unfounded and they were great. We were not allowed to vacuum before departure, despite the instructions, and they have not posted negative feedback about the damage we did to their lawn manouvering my heavy wedding car.

  • The cottage setting and views are stunning

    The cottage setting and views are stunning. It's a very comfortable and restful cottage, with a real bach feel. Limited cooking facilities but a comfortable and very restful place to take a break, set on a spectacular peninsular, close to city and its cafes and restaurants, as well as country stalls for local produce. Loved it!

  • Location was great if you are wanted something quiet (which we did)

    Location was great if you are wanted something quiet (which we did). The property itself whilst basic, has everything you could want. The bed was very comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped and there was plenty of off road parking. I would certainly recommend it to anyone who is just wanting to blob out and relax.

  • Location is absolutely fabulous! Awesome views of the harbour from the property...

    Location is absolutely fabulous! Awesome views of the harbour from the property and access to the water directly across the road. Very light traffic on the road. Accommodation was very very clean, relaxing and quiet with a beautiful onsite garden! Fabulous parking right to the verandah too. Everything we needed was there. We highly recommend this bach.
