The pictures really dont do this place any justice. You just dont know how beautiful the locaton is until you are there. Absolutely stunning views. The cabins are basic but have what you need. Sitting on the verandah looking out onto the gorgeous ocean views is what its all about here. You can walk down to the beach for a... More

We stayed in the Ewebank cabin last week. The view was spectacular and it really is a little piece of paradise. The staff were really friendly and we enjoyed our stay. We will definitely go back. There are a few things that would really improve the cabins. The curtains in the bedroom could be replaced and a bedside lamp in... More

Firstly they need to update there photos, as the cabins have a few new things (new couch. fridge, lamps etc.) The view from your cabin is breath taking! Nothing but picture perfect views, as far as the eye can see! Right there from your cabin. The beautiful white sand, blue water beach didn't only look amazing from your cabin but... More

We recently spent 3 nights and loved it! Yes, the cabins are rustic and there were some gaps between the logs on the walls, but the kitchen was well equipped and our cabin was clean and tidy. It looks as though there was new windows and sliding glass doors recently installed which highlighted the fabulous views. We were visited by... More

This was our third stay a Hanson Bay Cabins - we love the location. James Tomlinson made an effort to fit in our larger party of 9, even after I made a mistake with the dates. The cabins are basic but all you need for a beachside holiday. The pluses are the remoteness and the location just above a beautiful... More

This is a nice place. The cabins are fine but what makes it is the location and the view over the bay. We initially booked for three nights but extended the visit to four after we arrived. The are six cabins, a row of four and a pair. We stayed in Dun Cow, at the end of the block of... More

We loved Hanson Bay Cabins. The location can't be topped, the view is simply spectacular. They are perched above elemental Hanson Bay, where you can watch the Southern Ocean breakers thundering in. There are 3 beaches, all of which are safe to swim in (we especially liked the second beach). These cabins belong to the Hanson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary 3km... More

If you're looking for luxury cabins, don't book in here. But if you want a quiet place to stay, fantastic views, a bit of local wildlife and a well equipped cabin, don't hesitate to go here. We really enjoyed our stay here, just a few km off the standard tourist routes. Take the chance for an early visit to nearby... More
