We absolutely loved our stay in this stunning little property. This was a special night away for my parents and with my partner as part of the FAWC weekend celebrations - we would choose an event again at this location just to stay here again. The beds were to die for...like lying in a cloud, spacious rooms, everything you could think of was there or available somewhere and it felt like we'd been away for a week rather than just a night. Pleased to see local product items in the bathrooms, well done BB. For a luxury summer family reunion or private event then this is certainly the spot to do it in! The view from the deck upstairs of the beach and Bare Island is gorgeous, the kitchens well appointed (our room had its own kitchen as well) and the provisions for breakfast that were left were just right; the outdoor Cabana the perfect spot to sit late into the evening...we've made a pact that we MUST have a night away here at least once a year. It's expensive...but if you had a group of friends to share the cost then it's worth it! Can't wait to do it again.
