Response from Owner
Thanks Ingrid! It was great to see you all making the most of the nature treats on our doorstep!
We came to stay for a birthday treat and liked it so much we extended our stay by a night and then there was a cancellation so we extended our stay again. We can honestly say that this cottage is great in all weather - sunny days and torrential rains. The views are wonderful, lovely gardens to enjoy and the cottage is stocked with everything you could need. Wendy & Wayne are knowledgeable about the area and are there if you need anything - like AAA batteries. Will definitely stay again - looking forward to it already.
Response from Owner
Thanks Suvi, it was lovely to have you both stay and we're pleased you're already planning your return. And yes! AAA batteries - that was the heat pump issue too! Remotes! Wayne is sharpening up his maintenance "checklist". Thanks for your patience!
Dave and Marion
Super stay. This cottage has comfortable furniture, a comfortable bed, a lovely garden and sea view from the kitchen, lounge and bedroom and great privacy. It was very clean and breakfast supplies were generous. We loved sitting on the deck with our cereal and two friendly wekas. The access road is quiet and leads to a walk around the lighthouse and seal colony. Excellent value. We would stay longer next time!
Response from Owner
Thanks, appreciate your comments, both here and in our guest book. We'd love to see you back sometime :)
