The views from upstairs are simply breathtaking and nights relaxing by the open fire were just devine ! Our four legged friend also loved exploring the gardens and the endless walks on the beach.... absolute bliss. Thank You for sharing your little piece of paradise Moira :-)

Beautiful peaceful haven

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay for my birthday weekend. So peaceful and loads of space. Incredibly well equipped with everything you could need. My only suggestion would be it needs new pillows or take your own. Otherwise totally intend to return.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay, there are really good pillows for each bed and lesser pillows for the "fancy" pillows just for the look - unfortunately they get swapped around depending who makes the beds up! I guess I need to get rid of them so ALL the pillows would be OK to sleep on. Thanks Moira :-)

Doggy heaven

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic 3 night stay here with our 2 dogs. The house has everything you could wish for and the dogs loved exploring the property. The beach was so close and we often had it to ourselves so the dogs ran crazy - loved it. Great dog friendly property. Now that we have relocated to Tasmania we will definitely come back to stay here again.
