“Lovely, comfortable, fresh apartment with knockout view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2013

My wife and I just recently returned from a weekend stay here with our 4 month old child. Kath and Ken are very obliging hosts, keen to make sure everything was OK, especially our baby. The view was amazing and the accommodation spacious and fresh. Do yourself a favour.

This is a great place to stay. Just outside of town with magnificent views. We stayed in the Unit 1 which was very spacious and well appointed. Large lounge and dining room with large verandah overlooking the ocean. Good laundry and kitchen facilities. The beds are so comfy. Only sorry we didn't stay longer. Would thoroughly recommend.

We stayed here as a quick overnighter with my aged grandmother and our toddler and baby , Ken was kind enough to show us around and explain things & actually put up the port-a-cot for us .
We stayed in the two bedroom unit which was lovely and large and the views were magnificent (A shame we only got to enjoy them for a few hours) The decore is of older style but in great condition and the apartment was well cleaned.
We were only sad that the fireplace was not in working order.
Definetly reccommend .

We loved staying here, the view is amazing, and it is so peaceful, we wish we could've stayed longer. The room was comfy and warm, we spent as much time as possible drinking in the view. The hosts are very welcoming. This is such a beautiful part of the world. We found the gourmet pizza place the best place to eat in town, sorry I can't remember it's name but its the only one there, great food and wine. If we'd been able to stay longer we would've take advantage of the kitchen and the BBQ. Next time :)

I was only able to stay here one night, but the apartment was clean, staff was friendly, and views were incredible! I highly recommend staying here! The owner showed us our apartment, gave great advice of things to do in the area, good restaurants and stayed just a few steps away which was very convenient if we had questions.

We stayed one night in a ground floor apartment which was clean, comfortable and spacious. Kath is a lovely hostess who came around to make sure we had everything we needed. We settled in to relax and enjoy the stunning views. I left the bedroom curtains slightly open hoping to get an early glimpse of the wallabies that graze on the lawn. Just after 6am I woke to find a man standing directly outside the bedroom window cooking his breakfast on the BBQ outside the window. That could have been just funny except that the whole family then took over the outside space including our front bench where we were hoping to sit and drink our coffee. With all the noise and smell we decided to pack up and leave quickly. I know this probably sounds picky and I do believe in give and take but this lack of respect for other people's space did mar what could have been a perfect stay. I know the owners can't do much about it but I think moving the BBQ to a more common area could help. Other than that experience we enjoyed the location and the comfort of the apartment.

We took the two bedroom unit with our 2.5 year old and 10 month old. The cottage is very child friendly. Amenities are basic but the location and views are outstanding.

Ken and Kath are very friendly and leave you to your trip but are there if need be. Great spot to be able to get to Freycinet or Bay of Fires.
