“WOW!!! What an amazing place to stay! The cottage is gorgeous. Spacious dining area, with huge wrap-around windows that fold out, giving an outdoorsy feeling indoors. Views out to pond and ducks, fruit trees and finches, ocean. Lovely big, original fireplaces, all lovingly restored. Top quality linen on the beds and super fluffy towels in the bathroom. All the modcons needed for a comfortable stay. One minute stroll to your very own beach, complete with outdoor shower. We wheeled the kayaks (life jackets provided) down and had a lovely paddle. Nicely maintained walkways all around cottage – bush walks and coastal. Glow worms at night! Owner Greg made us most welcome and made sure we wanted for nothing. Even provided our dog with a dog bed! Couldn’t ask for more.”
