Lovely cottage in a good location. Perhaps a little dark as all old cottages tend to be - with small bathroom off the lounge. Otherwise pleasant stay.

Beautiful stay with the loveliest hosts

The house and grounds are beautiful and well designed, right in town with cafes and restaurants close by. Super comfy bed and delicious breakfast, but the cherry on top were our lovely hosts, Maree and Alan, so charming and friendly and made us feel so welcome. Thanks again! Anna & Jakob

Great value, AMAZING location

Stayed in the 2 bedroom Bayview Apartment with a girlfriend last Saturday for a girl's night away. The staff were so warm and welcoming a provided us with a delicious breakfast basket on arrival and accompanied us to the apartment to show us around. The apartments itself was very spacious with incredible views from the lounge room which had a fantastic gas heater. Great kitchen and dining area and very comfortable beds. The house was also very clean. We took advantage of the laundry facilities and both enjoyed a long hot shower! The location of this apartment is outstanding - we had a vast array of restaurants within walking distance and enjoyed a lovely walk along the pier with our takeaway coffee's in the morning! I will definitely be back for a night with the hubby! The only comment I would make was that there was a little bit of noise from the street (people walking past and talking) which I could hear from the front room as I was heading to bed (10.30pm)...if you are a light sleeper and you go to bed early then I would recommend sleeping in the bedroom near the laundry as my girlfriend said it was very quite.
