4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2012

Bay Lodge has been a great escape from a busy daily life for us.
We very much enjoyed the comfort of the accommodation (including afar too inviting mattress), the relaxing atmosphere and the special treats by the hosts Philippe and Sonja.
Golden Bay itself is a place to fall in love with and we very much got a great sense of why the owners of the Bay Lodge settled here. Their story is definitely something to listen out for.
Also appreciable is the hosts' knowledge around outdoor options and tour offers. You can expect an honest answer about what is worthwhile doing or not.
We had a great time- indoors and outdoors- and will be back!!!!
