The Beach House has stunning views. Such an easy place to relax and enjoy nature. Lovely wood fire, relaxing outdoor spa, clean and comfortable indoors. Dover is a friendly, quiet town.

Incredible service from the moment we booked. Friendly, welcoming and then surprisingly more than I had anticipated. Sensational views. Comfortable, classy and anything you needed to be self contained. Mightily impressed. And a little mini bar to boot. Wished we could have stayed longer, one night was definitely not enough. THANK YOU DRIFTWOOD :)

This location is stunning. We arrived late however we were able to contact the owners easily who instructed us on how to get keys to enter our cottage. The cottage itself was very clean and well looked after and the location is quiet. It was lovely to open the curtains in the morning and sit on the verandah looking out to the river. We found the golf club had delicious meals and the RSL was walking distance to geab a nice feed also. We will definitely book here again!

Loved our stay at the Beach House, wood heater was damaged so the lovely staff left a bottle of bubbly as a compliment for the minor inconvenience in saying that the heat pump was more than adequate. We were lucky enough to have a completely calm night, no wind and not a cloud in sight which made the out door spa experience magic looking up at the stars.
