“Spectacular views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

The house's location, overlooking Gans Bay, couldn't be better. You don't need to leave the living room to soak in the amazing views, punctuated periodically by whale's fins breaking the water. But of course you'll want to step out onto the glorious deck and enjoy the breeze coming off the ocean--and enjoy a sunset chardonnay. We spent a delightful two days here--our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer.

“On the Rocks !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We stayed at Xairu for 3 days during April. The house is well designed and beautifully furnished. Everything you expect from a luxury beach cottage. The views are splendid and the ocean is crashing on the rocks below. Easy distance to many interesting shops and restaurants. You will not regret it. (Please note that the coast is very rocky. Not any real swimming beaches within walking distance)

“Breathtaking views!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We stayed in Xairu with overseas family and it was a unforgettable experience! The house is proof that modern architecture can be beautiful, functional and cosy at the same time. The house features 3 good sized bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a very well equipped kitchen and breath-taking sea views from every possible room! We will return in whale season so we can see them from the balconies!
The owners have created a very useful file with activities, information, restaurant idea etc which was very helpful. The town is only a short drive away and has a good supermarket and all other amenities required. There are several wine farms, restaurants and even a fantastic petting zoo/play park for the kids in the area and you can go shark cage diving if you feel adventurous. We went for a more child friendly sea excursion and saw a whale (out of season!) a school of dolphins (at least 20 of them really close!) penguins etc.
After all the excursions the house was a great safe haven of tranquillity to return to, with the soothing sea sounds and the spectacular sunsets making it an unforgettable experience!.
We had a whale of a time (yes pun intended!) and will definitely be back!
