We have been visiting Ripples every summer for the last 4 years and an occasional long weekend in between. We love nothing more than watching the sunset through the beautiful big windows. With teenage children there is nothing better than the set up of upstairs and downstairs with an external staircase to give the kids a taste of independence and the adults the illusion of a holiday without kids! We can't wait for our next getaway to Ripples.
We have stayed at Ripples 5 times over the past 3 years. It has accomodated my husband and I and our adult children as well as my elderly parents in spacious style. We love the incredible panorama of uninterrupted ocean from the big glass fronted windows..sunsets are spectacular! The proximity to Port Elliot makes riding our bikes there very easy. The beds are comfortable and the house is very well maintained. The library has so much choice. A big house in a wonderful place to unwind by the sea.
We booked this house in the hope of a lovely family holiday. Unfortunately the description was misleading and failed to mention that there is only an external stair case between levels that has painted treads and is not safe during wet weather. Not suitable for families with elderly members or younger children. No refund was offered when this misleading lack of detail was raised with owners. We did not end up staying here and needed to book elsewhere at short notice. Very expensive and disappointing choice.
