Norm and Shelagh are really lovely people and make you feel very welcome. We arrived late at night and both were up to greet us and to ensure we settled into our room comfortably. They were eager to help us plan our stay and gave great advice as to what we might see and do in the short time frame we had (only 2 nights, 1 full day). We followed their advice and took a boat to see dolphins and the hole in the rock, which was a very pleasant way to spend the day, seeing some beautiful scenic coastline and some very playful dolphins!
The room was comfortable, clean and tidy. Heaters and extra blankets were available in the cupboards to ensure we kept warm. The kitchen provided a means to cook our own meals (great way to save some pennies). The balcony was a fantastic place to sit and eat brekkie looking out across an amazing view of the bay. It was great to wake up to a swim and to have a bounce on the trampoline, also overlooking the bay!
Thanks Norm and Shelagh, we had a great time and a very comfortable stay.
