In summary, we had a wonderfully relaxed time and the first time 8 nights felt like 3 weeks away!
Barrier Beach House is stunningly beautiful, enhanced even further by it's terrific Australian hosts Shane and Shendall.
A central house with extensive decking is surrounded by 3 fares. The house has a cocktail bar, comfy seats and day beds, plenty of books, mags and views to inspire you every minute there. The landscaping is magazine perfect due to Shane's (a landscaper) touch, and the inside home decor also magazine worthy with Shendall's attention to detail.
The hosts will ensure you have a terrific time and will coordinate anything you need - a hire care, a restaurant booking, a massage in your room, a tour...you name it, they will truly gladly organise it.
They do not have a restaurant, so their lovely kitchen staff will only prepare food for guests.
For lunch, they have an assortment of baguettes and other simple lunch menu items. Just perfect, fresh and delicious. Cocktails available during all waking hours. The optional dinner menu has one choice per night, advised in advance by a board in the central room.
They were truly home cooked meals, delicious organic ingredients freshly prepared. I'm vegetarian, but my partner enjoyed outstanding organic beef, pork, chicken or fish freshly caught by Shane. They were not too sure how to cook vegetarian meals, but a few ideas I mentioned were quick to appear on my plate for the next meal - how is that for attention and service!
The fare’s are well equipped and cleaned, all with direct views of the beach.
The beach is beautiful, with white sand and very clear warm water. Several coral reefs are a short swim away and you are guaranteed to see colourful tropical fish. You can use their snorkelling equipment or double kayak free of charge.
Fans in the room are just right to sleep cool and flyscreens on every window means no mosquito nets!
I loved this place and would recommend it to couples wishing to get away or those in need of true relaxation time.
Santo is a beautiful destination with a handful of adventure activities. We did the Mount Hope River Adventure tour – a must, Champagne Beach – cannot be missed, Port Orly – can be missed. Locals are very relaxed happy people. We felt very safe.
