Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
What a treat! We were extremely impressed with Dina's beautifully appointed home, with 2 large bedrooms and a baby nook, a bathroom with views to die for and a stunning retreat lounge upstairs, 2 more bedrooms and ensuite, downstairs with kitchen and lounge dining area, and separate shower and toilet in the laundry area, this home has it all... Unsurpassed 180 degree sea views, a perfect spot to just sit and watch the everchanging seas and skies or to travel to the various towns and beaches the Fleurieu Peninsula has to offer. The whales were there but ever elusive, however, we did manage a few glimpses each day! We were loathe to leave after our 5 day break, and it wont be long before we head back to Holiday on Hayward, to do it all again... Thanks Dina for providing such a homely comfortable holiday home xxxx

Buffalot Bliss
We had a wonderful few days at Buffalot. The house was extremely comfortable and cosy with the most amazing views of the ocean and Granite Island. The house had everything we needed, with lots of space and perfect location We will definitely be back again.
