We spent 2 nights here and wished it was a week. Beautiful surroundings. The Manager was friendly and helpful. The cabin was fantastic with ocean views just 20 metres away. Definitely a great place to stay and inexpensive. We cannot rate this place highly enough. Out of this world.

We had one night here and it was great. We booked a one bedroom cabin which was very cute and intimate. It had everything we needed as well as the most amazing views! Swansea is close by (10 min drive) so we headed there for both dinner and breakfast. Highly recommend if you are looking for a night away up... More

A very well managed property, with very well done up interiors. Complete in itself. Amazing sound of the waves hitting the rocks. Only drawback which I felt is lack of any major network connection and Wi-Fi. Could be a blessing for some and a pain for some. The view is awesome. A tad bit expensive.

Great cabin in stunning location. Everything you need for a retreat by the sea. Nothing better than being lulled to sleep by the sea. Good bed in tastefully decorated cabin. Excellent value. Only downside is you need to boil water to drink but owner provides free bottled water.

This property is very well set up, quite compact but nicely presented. The views out over the ocean are magic, but there is no deck to sit out on. The owners are very friendly and willing to help out in any way they can. There is no restaurant here, you have to go into Swansea for a meal and there... More

Lovely cabin, very well appointed. The bed was so comfortable. We loved all the little extras. The views across the bay to Freycinet NP were amazing. A lovely picturesque spot about 11km out of Swansea. Very peaceful and relaxing but close enough to all tourist attractions.

We had a wonderful cabin with stunning views over the ocean. Unfortunately we missed the dolphins by a day. Had drinks on a bench looking overlooking the sparkling sea & then cooked our dinner in the cabin. Wish we had more time but managed to go up to Wine Glass Bay lookout where someone had just proposed. And she said... More

Excellent location and very well equipped and comfortable cabins. Good service and outstanding view across to Freycinet. Short drive to Swansea and close by national parks etc. would be even better in warmer months. Highly recommended

Chris F, Manager at Hamptons on the Bay, responded to this review

Dear MMK08, we really appreciate your kind review about our location and facilities offered and your recommendation. It is great here in summer, but spring and autumn are also great times to visit as hiking about the national parks in the slightly cooler temperatures can be really comfortable. Thanks too for your comments on the service you received. Much appreciated. More
