We loved the property - clean and green with beautiful sea views and a short easy walk down to the lighthouse or around the old buildings - the lighthouse keepers' cottages, old telegraph station and so on. Our accomodation was clean, comfortable and of an acceptable standard. It was a tad small and poky but hey, you get what you pay for, don't you.

The property is all about the location. It’s rustic and you have to accept that it’s a building from 1859 and it’s renovation is old too. It’s like staying in a farm stay and that’s ok but the lack of openable windows means the place smells dank. The oven was unusable (if not dangerous), the kitchen door is on one hinge and our food order was never received (although an email was sent). The place is run by like the heritage or vic gov so you it’s not professional. If you can accept this then you will find it charming. It’s the location and history you are there for and that’s great. For the price you pay though you’d expect at least 3 star accommodation.

A great experience being able to stay overnight within an historical precinct. Just you, the wildlife and the most amazing stars you'll ever see.

Had the entire property to ourselves. Absolutely loved the isolation and the view from our window was incredible. We even had a visit from the ghosts!! Loved it.

A lightstation - what a wonderful place filled with historical details and interesting, out of the norm ambience. Definitely a place I’d return to.

This is a beautiful place to stay. After the gates close at 5pm, you are the only ones there, it is so serene and peaceful. We loved being able to walk out the door and see the light house right in front of us and we got some great photos without another soul around to walk into our photos. I can't recommend this place highly enough.
