Yurt Getaway
Beautiful cottage with everything you need for a relaxing break. The view is amazing with plenty of space for the kids to do their sprint training every afternoon. Delightful hosts…… we will be back!

4/5 Good

Peace quiet and privacy with views
Lovely location if you want to be away from any action and the yurt is great. (It’s a yurt in shape only and is nicely appointed.) Only one slight negative in our opinion. Hosts not into customer service in any way - not even a welcome email (only a balance of payment demand even prior to the due date), no welcome or ‘hope you enjoy your stay’ comment anywhere. Of course no one wants hosts in your face, but this seemed particularly hands off and perfunctory, as though they are over it. The funky pod coffee machine did not work well and the Aldi frother is missing parts. Cleaning was good, not excellent. Overall very pleasant but I felt like we were a means to an end and tolerated rather than welcomed.

Lovely getaway
I booked here on the spur of the moment having left it too late to find anywhere on the coast. We just loved our stay. The Yurt is a lovely space with beautiful views. The kids & I swam at Flat Rock (Fish River) and visited Bathurst and Mayfield Garden. The only thing I’d note is that there are somewhat limited facilities for self-catering (small fridge, plug-in cooktop etc). It was fine for breakfast and basic meals but would have been challenging for anything more elaborate. We all agreed we’d love to come back.
