The name says it all as our experience has given us memories that will last a life time. The personal service offered by Sasha was exceptional, accommodating for our every need. The food by Rachael was divine to say the least and the Cliff House speaks for itself with its focus on the magical views over the pristine KI coastline.... More

We had the opportunity to stay in brand new Sheoaks house as the very first visitors. Our stay was beyond our expectations, the ocean view from the house was spectacular and the equipment and attention to detail in the house was amazing!! The place was warm with relaxing music playing from the iPod as soon as we arrived. We took... More

We recently had a wonderful stay at the Sky House. We arrived to heated floor, the fireplace stacked, music playing, complimentary figs from the orchard and a note wishing us a good stay from the owner. The service was so thoughtful. We were blown away by the beauty of the Sky House and the view. We had a wonderful clear... More

Cliff House is tucked in at one end of the cliff at Snellings Beach and it is just an amazing location! We really enjoyed going for a run and swim in the mornings, to finish in the hot tub on top of the cliff! The King Bed Tower Room is great, but is only the size of the bed and... More

We stayed, with another couple, for four wonderful days at this lovely cottage within a stone's throw of the beach. As the bedrooms (3) were similar in size, and all with en suite, this was a much better choice than the other properties, although without the view (and steep climb up from the beach). Perry, the English manager was on... More

Thanks for your feedback on our Settlers Cottage. Since your stay we have started the process to fit a door to the master bedroom and hope to have that in place over the next few weeks. We can also see your point with storage. Although we are limited with space, we will be purchasing suitcase racks so at the least... More
