The rooms were decorated beautifully and were spic and span. The breakfast was hearty. And the hosts were amazingly friendly and helpful. A good 20-minute walk from Warners Bay high street (which has some great restaurants).

My boyfriend and I stayed here last year with our husky ruby and we had an amazing time. I love the way the house is set out. As a parent to my husky who has social anxiety around other dogs, this meant that we were all (including my pooch) able to relax without needing to worry about my dog getting... More

We had a lovely experience here. The lady was fantastic. The room was quite comfortable and with plenty of local eating options available. The breakfast provided as part of the rate was restaurant quality and couldn't ask for more. The whole place was nice and I look forward to going back

My wife and I stayed for the week and just wanted a place to relax and chill and this was it. Serena and Kim were fantastic hosts and provided the best breakfasts, all options were great. Close to Warner Bay, restaurants and cafes.

Excellent place. We absolutely loved the rooms and the pool and the whole atmosphere. The owners were really cheerful and helpful and the cooked breakfast was to die for! Would definitely recommend this to anyone.

I have never had to write a bad review about accommodation before and do not like to do it but at almost $200 a night, one should expect a clean bed. Before getting into bed we pulled back the covers to find the bed had human and dog hair all over it, including a huge clump of long hair (we... More

How very sad that I need to offer a public reply to this ongoing battle. Jessica - you arrived out of reception hours - and we always leave instruction for guests to find their accommodation and that instruction clearly states that we are available after hours via sms or mobile call. You had enquired several months prior for accommodation but... More

This was a first B & B experience for my husband so he was a little unsure but he really enjoyed the privacy of the layout and the off street parking. Huge room, very clean and well appointed.

I visited here recently on a trip through to Ballina from Melbourne. The room was beautiful - large, clean and nicely decorated. The gardens are lovely and I was sorry I had no time for a dip in the pool. It looked so inviting and is lit at night. The Balinese theme of the rooms and the gardens added to... More
