My husband and I recently spent a weekend in the African themed room. Everything from arrival was fantastic. Lisa was welcoming and made you feel at home. The room was beautiful and everything you could need and more. We had a dine in experience on the first night and the food was beautiful and plenty of it. Breakfast each morning... More

The thought and attention to detail Paul & Lisa have put into this amazing coastal retreat was obvious from the moment we arrived. The warm welcome, the personal touch to the accommodation (we were in the Beach house), the little welcome gifts, and the "nothing to too much trouble" approach ensured we had a terrific 3 days at bbb.

To Paul and Lisa, We cannot thank you enough for the quality and therapeutic value of our time at Big Blue Backyard. We went as a three couple family group, one to each hideaway. All three couples had a completely and extraordinarily great experience. The low impact and creative manner in which Paul has worked to provide this experience for... More

We had our getaway at the BBB in November to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. It was an amazing experience! We literally walked out the backyard, down the sand dune, and there it was, the beautiful St Andrews Beach! We had a very pleasant walk on the beach before having a short drive to Cape Schank. When we got back... More

We returned to bbb for another relaxing weekend, this time to the beach hideaway. The service, accommodation and meals were exemplary as usual. The beach hideaway shares a wall with the African hideaway, but don't worry, you won't see anyone although might hear the occasional door or sound. It's difficult to decide which hideaway we'll pick for our third visit... More

We had a our 2nd stay at BBB in late November - this time we went with friends. Hard to believe but it seemed even better 2nd time around.The bungalows are private and perfectly situated just a 10 minute walk to the wilderness of beautiful St Andrews beach. Peninsula Hot Springs is also close by. We returned from out bathing... More

We stayed in beach house, charmingly decorated with beach and sea artefacts, homemade furniture and the biggest bed I have ever seen. There is a wooden deck with an outdoor spa bath and shower and total seclusion in the surrounding bush. The bathroom is spacious and supplied with classy toiletries. Lisa and Paul are utterly charming and make you feel... More

WOW, what a gorgeous romantic escape. I will forever have very special memories of our night in the bush retreat at Big Blue. Such a beautiful place. Loved the bath on the deck and the food was absolutely amazing! We only added the dinner on at the last moment and I am so glad we did - can't recommend it... More

Dear Lisa and Paul, We would like to thankyou for the most relaxing and most romantic stay. Celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary here was magnificent. The ambience provided by Lisa and Paul was truly rermarkable. Everything had been thought of. Our only regret was not having dinner catered in our room every night. The food was exceptional and when we... More
