Cleanliness was on point, space and views amazing. Let downs - no wood for the fire, heat pump remote non existent, Weber didn’t work, table tennis no balls, limit of two rolls of toilet paper for 8 people. No communication with items taken away with covid restrictions eg; cooking oil etc.

The location is superb, very convenient to the general store & eateries (walking distance), the beach, & the house has the best views over the stunning Coles Bay! The house is absolutely amazing, tastefully decorated with everything you would want from a home away from home.

Stunning property -both the house itself, and the location. Beds were comfy and it was well set up for a group get together. The only (very) minor complaint was there was no lock on the main bathroom door.

A-MAZING!!!
An amazing house! Perfect for a family - or 2 like us! So comfortable and loved everything about it including the view, lounge room, kitchen, outdoor spa on the balcony, bathrooms, pool room and all the touches of linen and decorations. The only regret was not having more than 2 nights there - we could have easily settled in for a week! We just loved it and highly recommend it.

The view was spectacular. The open plan, kitchen lounge and deck were terrific. The appliances, plates, serving platters etc. in the kitchen were amazing. The downside is the number of bathrooms and the bedrooms are really small, especially the bunk room where the bunks are two close to each other.
