Accommodation and facilities were spectacular. It's obvious that much thought and effort has been taken to achieve such quality. No need is unmet; the hosts made us feel at home and that nothing was too much trouble.

Best B&B Experience!!!

All the facilities we could have wanted and more in a great location near the beach. Robert and Ian were the perfect hosts, making sure we had everything we needed. Didn't manage to make use of all the facilities, but we had the relaxing stay that we had hoped for.

Absolutely beautiful location, just awesome

Pros: Ian and Rob are just the friendliest people you will ever meet. They were so accommodating and made sure that we had everything we needed. There attention to detail was just spot on, this was the best vacation my wife and I have had for a very very long time. The place is just beautiful, there are plenty of things to do there but my wife and I were just happy to spend time with Ian and Rob and chat with them. It is a very relaxing environment and both Ian and Rob provided plenty of suggestion for things to do, their knowledge of the area was excellent. I must admit my wife and I felt very spoilt, especially when it came to the cooked breakfast in the mornings or the cinema time of an evening with the popcorn and ice cream. This is one of the best home theaters i have been in and the recliners are just the best, when partnered with a blanket and pillow. When you come here you must try the spa and cinema room they are both just awesome. All in all one of the best places you will find in Victoria
Cons: Nothing, everything was just awesome. My wife and I had nothing to complain about.
