About 2.5 km from the town centre. We first booked an apartment with garden view. On arrival, my wife immediately asked for ocean view and was willing to pay any price for it.

A superb view with the added bonus of wallabies and possums feeding at night on the front lawns. A large airy apartment but in need of small refurbishment. Very adequate for our 3 day stay and close to the penguin beach. Local Pizza restaurant produced the best fish pizza I had ever tasted. Recommended

Excellent accommodation- great location close to Freycinet park, Wineglass bay etc. Superb views of unspoilt beach. Well equipped self catering property. Would have loved to stay another night but it was booked out. Highly recommend.

This accomodation has, by far,the best views!! Everything you need is in the room. We stayed in Unit 3 and it was great to wake up with the ocean in front of you. Very comfy bed! Easy to find. Close enough to the middle of town without enduring the noise. Great hosts who were very knowledgable about what to see...

We booked Unit 1 which was the top floor unit of the house and it took up the entire second floor. Units 3 and 4 were below us and were smaller since there were two units on that floor. The property looked plain enough on the outside but the view once we entered the door was simply breathtaking - this...

We stayed for two nights, wonderful views, about 3 kms out go Bicheno (this is advertised) a lovely little unit had everything we needed? Views are sensational! We had whales breaching out the font yesterday. Only down side is no mobile reception which should be advertised in case you need it.
