Karen and Ted are wonderful hosts and made us feel exceptionally... More

The spa was great and the breakfasts were excellent, nothing was too much trouble. If you are into hiking, would recommend Mt Bishop at Wilsons Prom rather than... More

We had a wonderful romatic weekend away. The room was large with all that you need, although some fruit would have been nice. Bed was comfortable. The hosts Karen & Ted were awesome. Karen gave me a fabulous massage and treatment. The meals were good. We enjoyed the isolated, pristine beach a 10min walk down the road - refreshing water!... More

The best weekend away ever. A one night break from the kids and we experienced amazing food, a beautiful massage, a spotless room, wonderful spa, a short walk to a pretty beach and the most lovely and friendly owners. Highly recommend it. So relaxing and romantic.

A beautiful and peaceful getaway only 2 hr drive from Melbourne. The surroundings are stunning with an endless unspoilt beach -perfect for long walks. The accommodation is beautiful, tastefully decorated and very comfortable and quiet. The hosts are very welcoming and friendly and make delicious meals and great coffee! Highly recommend!

I also booked my partner in for a 90 minute massage and facial and head massage,which was an hour after our arrival. According to her it was one of the best she had ever had.... More
