We stayed here on our wedding night, wish we could have stayed for a bit longer! Clean, quiet and private, the cottage is beautifully decorated, full of light and very inviting to walk in to! The owner was very helpful. I would definitely recommend for a weekend away or for travellers wanting to explore Sydney's northern beaches.
