Frankie and Jim have a lovely place. Immaculately clean and with all the little thoughtful touches that make you feel at home. The accommodation was more than ample for four of us and beds for six.

Excellent accommodation with helpful hosts. Loved seeing all the kangaroos around the inlet and the beach is just breathtaking. We enjoyed the heated pool and our little grand daughter loved the play area.

Wow! Thank you so much. The experience that our guests have is very important to us. It makes so much difference when we are cleaning or working in the garden to know it is truly appreciated by our guests. It is easy to do when our guests are as interesting and friendly as you two. Cheers, Frankie and Jim.
