We booked this accommodation as a last minute decision for an overnight stay and the hosts accommodated us perfectly. It was immaculate and faultless. Highly recommended for anyone looking for easy access to Dunsborough town, beach and surrounding wineries.

We spent 3 days here and enjoyed every minute. The room, gardens and pool were just as advertised. Short walk to the shops and restaurants with the beach just down the road. Breakfasts were exceptional and the little extra touches made this an excellent break. Sally and Serge made us very welcome, would recommend.
