Thankyou for your lovely review and for alerting us about the water pressure- we are having that looked into immediately. We hope to see you in the Far South again soon!

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.

Photos don't do this place justice!

Beautiful location right on the waterfront. Modern facilities and a HUGE deck spa where you can enjoy the view for hours. Close to Hastings Caves, and many beautiful walking tracks. We will definitely be back!

Excellent location. New and clean.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Large and stylish accommodation with easy parking even for a large 4WD. We saw Dolphins in the bay. The two nights meant we could enjoy Tahune and then enjoy a day at Recherché.

Beautifully positioned cottage

The cottage has excellent views of the bay and beyond. Very peaceful with dolphins swimming in the water. Recommend for either one or more nights.
