Great location - really quiet and peaceful - with a lovely outlook. Just what we needed. Spent time just watching the bellbirds feed only a few metres away. Quite special. The hosts are lovely people - very friendly and accommodating. Excellent breakfast - more than we expected - and great company. We chatted over breakfast and had a lovely time. Thanks. Simon & Jill.

Quiet spot on a hill overlooking the bay. Comfortable rooms and beds. A peaceful place to come home to after a day's activities. Great breakfast! Nice hosts. Book early!
