“The perfect place in Esperance”
Reviewed January 6, 2014 via mobile

You can't stop being amazed by this place at the moment you park your car and check out the view to the beach and the color of the sea of Esperance which is pretty unbelievable. This place makes you feel you're taking vacations on a friend's house instead of a B&B. The rooms are beautiful, clean, cosy, views are incredible. The breakfast Hellen prepares is so good and the views you enjoy having it is just a perfect start of the day. Esperance is awesome, incredibly beautiful, stay at least 3 full days!

Stayed January 2014, traveled with friends

Having such enthusiastic guests who embrace all that Esperance has to offer reminds me why I l love hosting travellers from our beautiful spot on the Great Ocean Drive. Till next time...

If you like a room with a splendid view, if you appreciate friendly, personable & lovely hosts, and if a wholesome, tasty breakfast is important for you, look no further. Bay of Islands B&B, with it's hosts Helen & Milton, is ticking all the right boxes.

We very much enjoyed our stay. When we come back to Esperance, Bay of Islands B&B will again be our place of choice.

Great to hear we're doing it "right". After years of travelling and finding what is important to us, we set out to make that happen in our B&B/home. Look forward to your return.

Scenic views, we never got to see any dolphins but the weather was not kind to us. Landlady Helen was very knowledgeable and helped us in our exploration of the area and the beautiful wild flowers which were coming out at that time. Breakfasts were very good. Not the best value place we have stayed in, especially as we did not even have a sink or facilities in our room.

Glad you both enjoyed the wildflowers on your recent trip. Regarding the facilities you mentioned, the room you booked online was the cheapest, smallest and was advertised that it had a private bathroom (a few steps outside the room) which meant separate toilet, and separate bath/shower. Hope it did not detract from your stay.

Feeling relaxed and refreshed I hope you enjoyed the remainder of your break away in the south west. The sun is shining and conditions are now perfect so come back and see it when you next have a mini break. Keep well, loved having you.

We could not have asked for more!! From the warm welcome to the incredible views, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be back. Nice private rooms where you can chill out and a really homely feel all round. Breakfast was top class and the host & hostess very welcoming and friendly.

Staying here was an incredible experience. The rooms are spacious and beds comfortable. The views of West Beach, spectacular! Helen is a wonderful hostess who cooked up a delicious breakfast every morning. The Bay of Islands B&B is a beautiful place to stay at in Esperance, we'd love to go back!

It was equally a joy for me to have the warmth of your family in our home and I felt like a member of it for a short time. I so look forward to seeing you return when the sun shines more brightly.

The views across the Bay of Islands from this upmarket home are quite astonishing. Helen's a wonderful hostess - warm, welcoming and most helpful. If you feel like sitting down to a sumptuous breakfast and taking in the breathtaking views at the same time, this is the place for you.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a 180 degree view
