We expected "rustic" but the "cottage" was simply awful. Furniture was old and torn. Walls had unpainted patches. Windows were caked in dirt, would not open and the back bedroom overlooked a mini-tip. Blinds were missing panels. It was overrun with thousands of cockroaches. To top it off, our daughter came out in a red itchy rash on her feet... More

Great location right on the beach but cottages are very basic. Normally this isn't a problem but unfortunately the beds were terrible. All beds were very old and extremely uncomfortable. We stayed in both the 2 bed cottage and the 3 bed cottage. All beds in both cottages were terrible and old. The couches and chairs were very uncomfortable as... More

Stayed for 4 nights with our two sons aged 10 and 7 years. Location is great, walking distance to everything in town and across the road from the water. We stayed in a beachfront cottage which had a nice view of the water. The shack is very basic and we were expecting that. However some basic care would add to... More

A group of 8 of us stayed in one of the cottages for 5 nights. Throughout our stay the shower was cold and there was no water pressure. The oven lighter also did not work, we had to pull apart the oven and use a serviette to light it. The walls that separate the cottages are also paper thin and... More

I stay here with my dogs and was very welcomed. It is basic accommodation but it is comfortable and the location is magic. Staff are friendly and helpful and I am keen to come back. Thanks for a comfortable stay.

Our family of five stayed in a two bed cabin for two nights. Yes they are basic, but they are in a fantastic location and full of character. Most importantly, the beds were comfy and the shower was hot with full pressure. Loved it and would highly recommend for families.

Stayed recently for three nights. These are your basic brightly painted fibro beach shack which must have been built in the 70s (?). Very sturdy (they recently survived a cyclone with only a bit of water damage), although the front steps could have been a bit wider (the tread is not big enough to put your whole foot on it)....

Stayed at the cottages for a week. What an amazing simple life style. Great facilities and very friendly staff. Had a great laugh and very helpful. They may be old the cottages but they certainly add character for a good old fashion family holiday. Would highly recommend visiting. I love shark bay. Can't wait for next holiday.
