The cottage was great size, design, clean, well equipped. The cottage was very warm, good heating,and fireplace, we were there in the midst of winter. The kitchen, furniture, spa, beds were all very good. There was a nice carport for the car, outdoor sitting area and great view overlooking the grounds and beyond. Stuart and Karen were very helpful when booking, very welcoming and friendly, providing a great caring service for their guests. Beach is 2 minutes from cottage for lovely walking.

This is our 3rd stay here which speaks for itself. Stuart and Karen were welcoming and attentive to our needs. They have modernised the cottage we stayed in and some of the others. The setting and the view is very relaxing. The unit was thoroughly cleaned to give peace of mind during this COVID time. Free bikes of good quality are available for use. There is also a fire pit down by the lake for a cosy outdoor experience. We loved the open fire in our cottage at night. Fast internet and access to streaming apps on the TV via your login.

The cottage was warm and comfortable, easy to find and access. Didn’t light the fireplace. Lots of windows and beautifully presented gardens and lawns. Smart TV was a good size with Netflix options etc. bed comfortable, sheets and linens very adequate. Good size spa. Spent 2 nights.

Location - states that it is overlooking the beach - it does not as all you can see is the location where the beach is but not overlooking. Accommodation - where to start. If you are after a cottage that was built 20-30 years ago and has never been updated since then this accommodation is for you. It has no cosy cottage feeling like you would expect from old style cottages. In fact all it offers is very dated, old fashion kitchen, front room with cheap and tasteless furniture, wooden brown ceilings, cold unattractive cemented dark tiles throughout the property and basic bedrooms with no character. Bathroom - as mentioned had cemented dark tiles throughout, so very cold inside and shower taps do not work. Kitchen - as mentioned it is very basic and dated and I did not feel comfortable in using any of the cutlery or kitchen appliances in that kitchen as they were not clean. Tidy-yes, but definitely not properly clean. Owner also asked to tidy after yourself and take all the rubbish bins out. Internet WiFi - non-existent as we tried to connect a few times and after 5 minutes it’s just throws you out. As you travel and want to connect to your family and friends and not being able to WhatsApp or FaceTime in this day and age is just unacceptable. Overall this accommodation is appallingly expensive for what it is and I would just not recommend to stay there. I have stayed in 4* hotels in various countries and claiming that this accommodation is 4* is absolutely misleading by the owner of the property.

WOW!! We have stayed at these cottages a few times over the past few years and they have been great. Now some of them have been renovated and are simply fantastic. We stayed in Cottage 1 which has been repainted, has new beds and furniture, a new stove and a huge decking and gazebo area for entertaining. The view of the ocean and grounds from the decking is spectacular. Friends stayed in Cottage 3 which has also been renovated. What an amazing wallpaper featuring a koala and pictures of other Australian animals made us feel so at home. The perfect family holiday location with the beach about 20 meters away. Definitely going back.
