Excellent location for a winter getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Warm cosy place to stay in the Winter. Lovely view of the bay. We were able to see the historic granite quarry at Cape Woolamai through the telescope provided. Clean and roomy with a fantastic bathroom and big bath. Very safe for our young grandson to play. We enjoyed the board games and piano. Cooking facilities are limited but overall very good value for money. Lots of restaurants and cafes nearby. Fantastic beaches and coastal walks. Something to suit all the family.

Excellent getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights for a friend's wedding on the Island. Great location, excellent views of the ocean. We were greeted by the owner on arrival with a fresh loaf of home baked bread. These little things go along way, very impressed. We would happily stay again. Very spacious, clean & had everything you need.

Beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Great place! Like ur own little house. Me and my son sat on the back deck eating crumpets and drinking a hot chocolate together (supplied by Julie) looking over the ocean.

Bed was comfy and could not fault the place like a home away from home. Owners are fantastic who leave you alone to really enjoy their place. First time I met them was when I was checking out. If your heading to the island this is the place to stay

Well equipped, sparkling clean, great views

  • 5 of 5

Loved our short stay. The property has a homey feel and is well equipped with everything you need. The little touches were great - fresh bread and real butter, toiletries etc. We loved sitting on the back deck watching the sun set over the water. Highly recommended.
