I always wonder if there is a place that can be perfect....... Well truthfully I can say that the beach villa here is everything plus more that makes a place perfect. I booked the dinner and massage package and from the moment we arrived for our two day stay we relaxed and had an amazing time. The food cooked by... More

Looking to celebrate a romantic night away for a special occasion, I was drawn to Big Blue Backyard by the great TripAdvisor reviews. It lived up to my expectations and we enjoyed a private, quiet night away. We found the location easily thanks to our GPS as it is located in the meandering back streets. The other two hide-aways were... More

We spent 4 nights in the Beach House ..... and loved it. Lisa and Paul couldn't have been more welcoming, fantastic meals (we ate in 3 nights) which catered for our dietary restrictions accompanied by good choice wines enjoyed outside, hearing the sea. Lovely walks along the empty beach. Lisa's recommendations on winery restaurants and delis so helpful too. The... More

My husband bought us a nights getaway for Christmas, wow what a treat! We stayed in the Beach Decorated Room on 27 December, which was amazing, with its outdoor bath and shower. The small touches like the bottle of bubbles (The Cups Estate - fabulous!) and the homemade cookies (they are amazing can I have the recipe :-)). The Aztec... More

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. The... More

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

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
