A wonderful holiday that surpassed our expectations. The island was a pleasure to experience and explore, but this accommodation was outstanding. We were made to feel welcome by both the staff and volunteers, and they were happy to answer our many questions about both the wildlife around the sanctuary and the island activities. Swimming and kayaking in the harbour were a delight, and the visits from various birds a real bonus. We truly did not want to leave, and are already planning our return.
Fantastic bach, had everything we needed including several types of native birds to watch! Really enjoyed being able to use the wharf for our boat. Will definitely visit again and recommend to others. Thank you for sharing your marvelous space with others!
