About this Holiday House

Road access, sealed to property, steep drive (2 wheel drive ok), 40 steps from carpark through native bush to cottage, needs a little fitness. Unobtrusive owners live on site. Large 4 acre section guarantees privacy for cottage tenants. Fantastic Honeymoon place! Why dont you come and share our little paradise? For more details about our place contact Yvonne & Vik

Response from Owner
Thank you Robin and Gwen for the great review - we would love to have you back
What an absolute gem! We had such a wonderful 5 day stay here. It's truly paradise. The ocean is right there on your doorstep. Great swimming, kayaking and beach meandering. We have two little girls and they absolutely adores it here. The bedrooms are just lovely. The garden has been beautifully landscaped. The owners are super nice and left us to it, we felt very much in isolated bliss. There is a wonderful hike within walking distance of the house. Everything is just so perfect. Thanks so much Vik and Yvonne for sharing your amazing property. We hope to stay again!
Happy return visitors! This place is stunning. This time we were two adults, three teenagers and a tweenie. Lots of books were read (mobile phones were removed to protests on arrival but never asked for after the first swim) and hours were spent playing in the kayaks, jumping off the pontoon and trying a wee bit of fishing from the dinghy. All was perfect - outdoor stuff, relaxing living area (recommend bringing a jigsaw puzzle), the bed is super comfy and the bunk room great, especially as sheets and duvets are provided. We took in enough food for 5 days, bbqd nearly every night and enjoyed pre dinner drinks either up on the deck or down at the picnic table. This place is truly paradise (and the composting toilet isn’t as bad as you think!!). Thoroughly recommend this spot for a family get away from it all.
