Great house in a great spot, quiet and private with good views, and the children enjoyed seeing the sheep just outside the windows. We had a fun stay thanks Dianna.

Diana is wonderful to deal with. House is everything that is advertised and is in a beautiful location. The only thing that would be nice would possibly be a couple of plug in fans for the upstairs bedrooms as it is very hot up there at night when the weather is hot like it was this weekend. Thanks so much Diana!

Great property for families. Spacious, private and comfortable. Good view from deck next to kitchen, a decent BBQ, is well furnished and basically everything you need to enjoy a break in a beautiful little place. Take linen, cleaning products, outdoor and indoor games, plenty of food and drink as the one store is not well stocked and expensive, sunblock, clothing for all weather conditions, diving gear, fishing rods. Water is restricted so prepare for short showers. Loved our stay, quality fsmily time in a great holiday home.

Great place, fantastic location close to a spectacular ridgeline walk. Roaring fire with the sound of the ocean outside...hard to beat.

We stayed three nights in this lovely spot with three kids aged 4-13. It was windy at the beach but the house has been beautifully designed to follow the slope of the surrounding landscape and is sheltered from the wind. The fire heats the upstairs and downstairs really well and is kid friendly with a fire guard. The open plan dining and living makes it easy to live in. Great views and just a short walk to the beach, lagoon and shop. Easy access to the top track to get to the headland and seal spotting areas. We had a great time and would recommend this as a warm, comfortable and attractive venue for any time of the year, even winter!

Stayed here for two nights with 12 people for a men's retreat. Nicely set back from the road and other houses and a short hop over the fence to the gap - such a good location, nice and quiet and great view! House sleeps extra guests comfortably, great amenities and well kept. Big kitchen, great living area. Fantastic place to stay - stoked.

We stayed at Magic Thymes for 2 nights to celebrate a birthday, and had a fantastic time. The house is so spacious, well equipped and tidy that it's definitely a great value for the money. The weather was wonderful and the starlit nights were unforgettable. The view from the open-plan living area/kitchen is breathtaking, and it's nice and cosy to watch movies on the VCR in the evenings, with great movie selection provided. The house is indeed only a short stroll away from the beach, where you can watch the surf(ers):) We'll definitely be back ASAP, as this is the place where you can feel you're getting away from it all. Thanks Dianne!

A well equiped and situated property; more utensils and kitchen ware than ever seen in a holiday rental. Lots of space and very comfortable. Things that could be useful for the future; a DVd player as most people have DVDs these days for those quiet evenings in front of the TV. All in all excellent value for money.
