5/5 Excellent

Amazing hideaway
Loved our stay, peaceful and relaxing. Best of both worlds, rural at the back door and the beach at the front. Easy communication with the owner who was very generous with all the little extras.

5/5 Excellent

Excellent stay “ a little” out of the way BUT that was what we wanted
11 out of 10 There was food etc. left in the fridge so we didn’t have to rush to get supplies A BIG THANK YOU 😊

5/5 Excellent

Country meets Coast.
We really appreciated the opportunity to stay in Joy's lovely house. It was spotless and full of provisions for a very comfortable stay. We loved the peace and quiet and the lovely walks along the coastline. One day, we hope to return and strongly recommend Plover's Rest to other travellers. It is a perfect place to stop when travelling from Victoria to South Australia.

5/5 Excellent

Above and beyond!
I cannot say enough about this property! It’s in the perfect location, is brand new and spotless, and Joy went to every measure to make sure we had an amazing stay. She gave us detailed information on where to shop, eat, directions, etc etc and we were even greeted by chocolates and a bottle of wine!! Forgot your body wash? No problem! Right down to the picnic basket in the cupboard, everything we never thought to bring was available. I’ve never stayed anywhere with this level of service. We found the nicest beach nearby was just a quick walk at the end of the road (Shelly Beach) - perfect for a quick dip and an incredible view for sunset.

5/5 Excellent

Very nice property in a lovely location
My wife and I were looking for a place to relax for a well and this was the perfect spot. Surrounded by green fields and only meters to the water, this was exactly what we were after. Port MacDonnell is also nice and close for great pizza and a nice cafe. Overall a great experience
