Spectacular Views in Converted Shipping Container Comfort
What an amazing property with fantastic views. You could sit and stare at the views all day. The shipping container has been converted very well and makes good use of the space and also to take advantage of the view. Our neighbours were sheep and cows and very well behaved. John was a great host, very friendly and helpful when we had trouble starting the fire. Would definitely recommend.
We had a wonderful stay at Lochie’s Lookout. Was incredible watching an electrical storm out at sea from the warmth of the bath (I’d recommend bringing some bubble bath!). My 2 year old son loved waking up to the sheep and cows who would come to visit.
I forgot what silence sounded like! It feels off the beaten track but still near civilisation.
There’s a great cafe with pizza between the accomodation and Wilson’s Prom that has good coffee. And a waterfall nearby that’s only a short walk once you’ve parked the car.
We had bad luck with rainy weather but it made no difference as the fireplace and huge windows made it possible for us to enjoy the amazing scenery while being warm and cozy. Would definitely go again!
Bliss on a hill
This is a unique property with everything you could desire for a peaceful time away from home. If you are relaxing , catching up on work or study, or in the holiday mode this is the ideal place.
Very nice and beautiful property.
We stayed with kids and traveled to Agnes in the summer. It was very hot and there were plenty of flies around the area. The property is very nicely positioned with great views. Lockie provided very clear instructions on getting to the property as well.
Overall I would recommend staying in this properly.
