Thanks Phil and Kerrie for being lovely hosts. The included breakfast was the highlight, you get a slip daily and from which you get to choose what you want for breakfast, everything from bread/cereal to eggs and sausages. They give you plenty of food as well! There's a very well-equipped shared kitchen on the deck. There's not much in terms of dining out in Denham so having a kitchen to cook your own food and free big breakfast helps a lot. There is a dishwasher and if you load the dishes the hosts will run it for you and you get clean dishes back. Apple TV/Netflix etc for rainy days, a sofa would have been nice to laze on ;) though I suppose most of the times travellers don't laze around indoors in Denham. Gorgeous view from the deck (can view both sunrise and sunset) and at dusk you can feed the wallaroos carrots. We stayed in the yellow room which was next to the jacuzzi and common kitchen/dining area (shared with the blue room). The blue room was probably more private and there's one more room downstairs with its own smaller kitchen. The B&B had resort amenities (shower caps, slippers, safe) which was appreciated. A lot of attention went into the interior design, everything in the yellow room were yellow e.g., kitchen appliances and linens, was a lovely touch.

An amazing stay, I couldn’t make in March 20 due to Covid , hosts gave me a voucher and made it in May 21. Located in pristine location, with views over national park and ocean. Accomodation is beautiful with outdoor cooking facilities which were fantastic for cooking breakfast provided with my stay. Hot tub on deck was also a highlight

Have to agree with all the other reviews. Phil and Kerrie are great hosts and nothing was too much trouble. From the huge breakfast, which was enough for lunch as well, don't complain about the way the eggs are cooked as you cook them yourself in a huge outdoor kitchen, Stayed in the yellow room and enjoyed socialising with other guests, including the mob of kangaroos that visit, for an evening drink and bbq. Thoroughly recommend this as the place to stay in Denham.

Phil and Kerrie are tremendous hosts with a beautiful home. The amenities they provide are more than 4 star. We stayed in the Yellow room and the bed was comfortable, the showers great, the facilities fantastic. They even give you breakfast! Loved the views from the balcony and the friendly company in the evenings- both in the home and outside with the little hopping visitors that came by daily at sunset. Wouldn't think of staying anywhere else every time we visit Denham again.
