My partner and I decided that we were going to go to the Oyster Festival for the first time. What had put us off in the past, was the thought of the crowds and not being able to get away from it
We were so fortunate to stay in a lovely B & B called Hopevilla. It was close enough to the ''hub hub' of things but far enough to be situated in tranquility.
We stayed in a gorgeous, spacious bedroom en suite....one of the beautiful 4 bedrooms available.
Breakfast was served at the time that was convenient to us and they even work up earlier to accommodate the runners.
Evenings were spent communing with other guests outside and inside when it got chilly.
It felt like a bit of a ''home away from home'' experience and we can't wait to return sometime in the near future

Construction of the house commenced in 1899 and was completed in 1901. The home is built of stone taken from the cliffs behind the house and features yellowwood floors, windows, oregan pine ceilings and doorframes. The house has since been tastefully restored. Hope Villa is a mere stroll away from the lagoon, restaurants and the scenic Eastern Heads viewpoints and walk, and is just a few kilometres from the centre of town. A few metres down the road takes you to a small lagoon beach from where you can walk out onto the lagoon sands at low tide or have a refreshing swim when the tide comes in. ... more less
