This is the most wonderful place, more of hotel than a backpackers hostel. The surroundings are breathtaking and, being at the end of the road, so peaceful.
We received a really warm welcome from Tanya and were pleased that we were up graded from a double bedroom to the self contained annexe. This was very well equipped, spotless and comfortable. Shayne and Tanya are both really engaging and made us feel like long lost friends and that nothing was too much trouble for them. On their advice we walked up the track to see the glowworms then down to the jetty to catch the phosphorescence.
Our only regret was that we were unable to book for the two nights we wanted. It is justifiably popular and I imagine that you need to book way in advance if you have specific dates you want.
I hope that we may make it back to this charming place one day.
