Its like staying with your Auntie and Uncle (the ones you like). Just about to eat fresh snapper. Caught by me straight in front of the house & cooked by Auntie Marie... fantastic. There's something special about the bed sheets. I have to go now because our flat whites are ready. Hahaha...oh thanks for the take away crayfish too Uncle.

Highly recommend this fantastic B&B! Beachfront property with amazing views of a beautifully secluded beach... stunning sunsets. Super friendly hosts, Marie and John truly went out of their way to make our holiday memorable. Delicious breakfasts including freshly made barista coffee, great size room, attention to detail in every aspect!

John and Marie are fantastic hosts and exceptionally friendly. The B&B has been purpose built so the layout is great if you want to talk to other guests and John... More

My wife and I spent a very relaxing 4 days with John & Marie, sharing their home and garden, whilst staying in their bed and breakfast apartment.
