"We stayed here at the end of our vacation and it was lovely! Quiet, secluded, but right on the water and near other fabulous places. (We enjoyed the beaches near and the walk to the lighthouse at Barrenjoey.) This place had more conveniences than my home and I wanted to hide and not leave but it isn't that secluded! The owner is great to deal with and we would go back again if the chance ever presents itself." Kay Dougherty, Boston, USA
