We spent one night here on the way along the west coast with our campervan. The setting was superb being right next to a beautiful beach and a five minute walk from pancake rocks. A walk along the beach at sunset was beautiful and there were not too many sand flies! Facilities were good, if a little cramped but what really made it for us were the wonderful owners. We locked our keys in our campervan in the torrential morning rain and the owner (we never got his name!!!) came out and helped us get in. He was a real superstar!! We would definitely come back.
