I can't recommend this place more highly. Fantastic location, beautiful place, amazingly well kept and perfect for a romantic getaway with Red hill just a stones throw away and the beach on your door step. We had the perfect weekend staying here.

Beautiful place set amongst the trees with ocean views. Great facilities, especially the BBQ on the beautiful decking area. The cottage was well supplied with breakfast and treats, movies, towels and robes. Noelene was a great host and was in contact before our stay and, although we didn't meet her in person, let us know she's was contactable and available should we need anything. Thanks Noelene! Laura

I am a easy going, nature loving person. I am self employed as a qualified hairdresser and massage therapist. I work full time but run the b and b with my husband Michael as a side interest and retirement plan for the future. One day I hope to retire and spend my day cooking breakfast for guests and then having time to spend in the garden. We love to camp out in the bush and go fishing whenever we get the chance.
We tend to leave our guests to enjoy the peace and privacy. We usually introduce ourselves if we are around when the guests arrive, otherwise we are always on hand nearby for any needs or questions, but we like to let people unwind and relax and enjoy their privacy.
