Alright, so I am writing this review not even one night into it. A little back story, my friend and I have been staying in hostels, and found this property by accident when all other accommodations near hot water beach were sold out or too expensive.
First, we arrive and Vern (owner/point of contact) has all these maps and recommendations for activities all laid out for us. He was super nice and such a fun guy to talk to. When we got back later, he went over the facility, including breakfast choices (which looked and I'm sure will be fantastic.).
Now for the house itself. Couldn't be more clean, from sheets to carpets and towels and bathrooms and showers, excellent. Beds. I stayed in the double room, my friend in the queen with adjoining bathroom, both comfortable and zero complaints.
Food nearby ranged from sea food to pub cuisine. All seemed good, but we landed at this pub that had a pretty solid burger and cheap (ish) beer.
I really don't know what else to say. I don't normally leave reviews, but this place was so rad, Vern so friendly and cool! . I would definitely not hesitate to come back.
Hope it helps!
