Charlie and Paul are fantastic hosts and really make you feel welcome not only in their guest house but also in their home. The place is rustic and that's part of the charm. No AC or infinity pool. Instead you get ocean breezes and a perfect beach. We also spent a good bit of time in the hammocks and playing with their puppies! Really it's awesome and the use of natural materials (thatch, wood, etc) set this place apart.

I almost hate to write this because I'd like to keep this place a secret. I felt like I walked right into the "Swiss Family Robinson" story. Truly amazing place with some of the most gracious and genuine owners I've ever met. Honored to now call them friends. I'll never forget my experience here. Whew, awesome!!!

Beautiful, right on the beach, hammocks everywhere! The owners are two of the nicest people in the area (possibly the world)...the whole atmosphere is perfection. The facilities are super clean and spacious. So relaxed and cheerful! I would LIVE here :)

We have been coming here frequently for several years. It's the best getaway to relax and disconnect. Paul, Charlie and family make you feel like home. The crashing of the waves is the most relaxing part of your stay. We will keep coming back every chance we have.

We tagged along with another couple who had previously stayed at The Li'l Aussie Hut. The owners are Charlie, Paul, and family who are originally from Australia, hence the name. Charlie and Paul are gems who make you feel right at home the minute you arrive! The Li'l Aussie Hut is a work in progress on an absolutely beautiful beach! The rooms are spacious and the beds are very comfortable! There is no need for aire as there is a nightly cooling on-shore breeze. If you want to relax and relieve the everyday stress, this is the place to be! So come on by, say G'day to Paul and Charlie and "slip a shrimp on the barbie"!
