A group of 5 of us, all older women tried to book the White Cottage for a weekend as a surprise gift for one of us who was turning 60. We made the booking by phone and paid $600 for 5 people for 2 nights. Our email confirmation said that we may get the White Cottage but it was not... More

Unfortunately you did not stay at the lighthouse and enjoy the experience. Our cottages have a quiet tranquil experience. As there are four different groups who can stay on the Lightstation we are very keen to maximise this experience. As such we do not encourage guests who are going to have a party in our accommodation. You cancelled your booking... More

The reason for the move was that we were given a finishing date and opened the bookings two weeks after this date. Asbestos was found in the roof which then delayed the project and bookings had to be cancelled or moved to another cottage. I pleased you enjoyed the red cottage More

-We never received any maps or confirmation from hotel. - It is difficult to locate with very complex entry instructions with keys, codes, telephone calls and locked gates. Yet no advance instructions sent. -We arrived at night and so had to phone to get all the instructions in dark with metal gate and chain and key lock to go through... More

We recently had a fire in the cottage and did not cancel your booking as we did not know about it. Normally the internet booking system sends details in this case the link failed and you nor us received any information about your arrival. More

I have just got off the phone after a conversation with Tony from the Cape Schanck Lighthouse team. I contacted him straight away away when my husband and I got home from staying overnight in the Inspectors cottage. Our experience of staying overnight at the cottage was very disappointing and definitely not worth $200 a night ( no Breakfast). My... More

This lighthouse is on a dramatic clifftop high above the churning turquoise ocean waves. We had a private tour of the lighthouse, climbed the steps to the top, where our guide explained how the light works. A boardwalk extends down the cliff to the beach below. Lots of walks available.There is a museum there too and 4 historic cottages for... More

We stayed here in May/June 2005 and it's still an amazing memory. We had the entire lighthouse keepers home to ourselves, the grounds to ourselves. Peaceful, safe and beautiful. We enjoyed shooting stars from the grounds at night. Privacy. Tour of the lighthouse. Overall a truly memorable experience. As we had the entire house to ourselves - we could choose... More

You would never share a cottage with another unknown group. If we let the cottage to one person there will only be one person in that cottage so there is no sharing of facilities. More

It was an unexpected experience to stay next to a lighthouse. The tour agency booked for our family of 4 and turned out to be a pleasant surprise to us in terms of the type of accomodation. Love the lighthouse, sea view, the open field to run around and the privacy. Areas of improvement: gate access management, comfort level at... More

I love this place, but it saddens me to see it not serviced to its full potential. I think that trying to ride off a 2006 tourism award is wearing a little thin in 2013. Beware if you are thinking about staying in and cooking, the kitchen is equipped with what I can only think is a supply of utensils... More

Arrived with an informative welcome by Mike outlining what needs to be done to enter the gated area, keys, and other information pertinent to our stay. You need to arrive before 4.00pm as the kiosk will close and then you need to make arrangements after hours to enter. As others have mentioned, the gate is difficult, but all it needs... More
