So relaxing

We loved our stay- soooo relaxing. Absolute waterfront. Lovely people. Great restaurants and cafes close by. Will be back! ( only problem for us was the bed was way too soft, but it wouldn't stop us returning!)

Thank you Fiona ! Will look forward to seeing you both again. (Currently doing a survey on "bed comfort" so have added your comment ... So far 5 out of 8 rate as very good with others ranging between average to too soft for that room. Of course if we find there are too many comments rating the bed as "too soft" it will be replaced). See you next time ... Judy

Perfect room with a million dollar view

Pros: Location, comfort and amazing ocean view straight from the room.
Cons: Everything is perfect.
Location: It's located on the beach itself. The pathway from back courtyard leads straight to the beach. Perfect location.
Great long weekend getaway from busy Sydney life. We tried booking for XMAS/ New Year Time in first week October but couldn't get the booking as it was all booked out till Jan first week. Best location facing the ocean. Comfortable room with all the amenities. Would definitely go there again. Highly recommended. Very friendly & polite owners.
