    The environment is great. The accommodation is first rate. Alison and Andre are excellent hosts. Their advice on where to eat dinner was spot on, and they made a booking for us. The breakfast is great. What else could you ask for?

    Birds Ferry is a lovely place to stay. Alison and Andre made us feel right at home and gave us excellent advice on exploring the beautiflul West Coast. With them as hosts, we'd also recommend sharing Alison's excellent meals the other guests. Great fun!
