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

This was our second stay at Big Blue Backyard and once again Paul and Lisa impressed. We booked the bush retreat for our 10th Wedding Anniversay and were welcomed with warm greetings and smiles. We always feel at ease here and had a very relaxing and wonderful night. The ambience was great and the food and service second to none.... More

I surprised my boyfriend with a night away at the Big Blue Backyard. He raves it was the best night of his life. You feel a miles away from society as you sit out on the deck. So much privacy. Completely surrounded by beautiful trees with the sound of the ocean crashing in the background. We were welcomed by Lisa... More

I've organised 3 nights with Lisa and Paul at Big Blue Backyard to celebrate my partner's 35th birthday. Since it was a special occasion I wanted to go "all out" for a long weekend in Victoria and having organised a few stunning dinners, accommodation was hugely important. Big Blue Backyard has definitely not let me down - we've chosen the... More

We arrived at Big Blue Backyard to the lovely Lisa greeting us. We had been married two days beforehand and due to work commitments were unable to take a honeymoon and I am also grateful as otherwise we wouldn't have found this little slice of heaven. The hideaway that we stayed in was the beach, beautifully presented, the bed was... More
