What a fabulous experience - from the first contact from the owner Paul to the final minutes of our stay, we could not have asked for anything more.
The home is elegant, welcoming and allows you to relax completely (the spa bath was an absolute treat every night after an active day with tired muscles). The artwork is beautiful and is just one of the obvious expressions of Paul's lovely sense of aesthetics which creates a feeling of belonging in the beautiful environment. The home is also incredibly practical, with a very generously stocked pantry, easy to use kitchen, steps down to the beach with atmospheric lighting.
We can't wait to be able to wake up in that peaceful bedroom and enjoy the view and sound of the ocean again!
Absolutely lovely place to stay. Breathtaking views, Lovely house with a very homely feel. Everything you could want or need for a getaway. Cannot recommend this house more highly!
A wonderful home and awesome space.To use the economy of words theory, as to truly review this amazing place would require a thesaurus and too many adjectives. So... The views are better than the pics..The home is faultless.. The beach a treasure...The living space just 'right'. Bed and shower are tip top.
Two examples of Paul's hospitality and thoroughness that Fiona and I experienced were as follows.. Fiona decided to make "from the ground up' veggie soup on our 1st night. Hour prep done. Hmmm how does cook top work? We don't have induction cooking, we called Paul, 5 min later all is good.. Now Fiona wants induction cook top !...The wireless modem did actually drop out one night. No problem. I walked upstairs and reset, 10 min later I came down. took 30 sec to reset 9 and a half mins standing on the bedroom deck listening to the waves.
Due to Paul's thoroughness it felt like our home and it was as simple as that.
Have no hesitation in booking Paul's "other home." We stayed 4 nights and could have stayed 8, or more.
Having stayed in five AirBnBs on our three week tour of Southern Australia and Tasmania, this property exceeded our expectations in every way - and was the best of all.
The beach-side location, being a good 10 seconds walk to the beach, and its position is outstanding. The property is beautifully furnished and very well equipped, and has been designed to take advantage of its stunning views over the ocean and beach.
If you're looking for somewhere special, then look no further!

Lets face it, when we book a holiday on Trip Advisor, or any other third party website we are never sure what we are going to arrive to, well what you see here is actually what you get ...... and even more........
What an absolutely amazing place this is.
From the ease of booking to the arrival was so professional and efficient. Everything about the COVE is just absolutely jaw dropping. As the photos show, no expense had been spared in ensuring the guests who arrive here feel like they are in a 5 star resort. We certainly did.
As you will see from my reviews, I'm a seasoned traveler, with great expectations for what I pay for, this is without a doubt the highlight of my travels to date.
There is so much to rave about I'm not sure where to start. The amenities are 5 star, the views, as the photos show is just so amazing, we even saw dolphins in the cove on our visit.
You can see the ocean while you are cooking, and the view from the bedroom and bathroom are amazing. Where in the world can you shower and see the ocean!
The owners have thought of absolutely everything, even if you haven't! From night lights to torches, great luxurious amenities, an "open" pantry, free use of canoes and equipment, more than one little chocolates at your bedside, even pool/beach towels, and your own private access to the beach. A coffee machine, which includes free coffee. ..... " and an endless choice of DVDs should you have a rainy day.
The bed is so so comfy (top class linen too) you don't want to get up, with the view from the bed why would you !
And it gets even better, cause this wonderful retreat has three bedrooms, which can be booked for a family, and with direct access to be beach, its a perfect place for any family holiday. We have booked to bring our family with in a few months time.
There are plenty of local wonderful restaurants to dine at, or have a BBQ on the BBQ equipment available at the COVE. the kitchen is equipment with all the utensils and equipment you will need, and there is also a full size fridge to stock up for your stay.
The list goes on and on..........
This was without doubt the best holiday I have ever had. A visit worth a 5 star rating!!
