What a lovely little cottage - everything you need - A little out of town but just take a few supplies and a bottle of wine and you are set Wonderful and quite lovely to lay in bed and watch the sun rise perfect setting

Chris F, Manager at Hamptons on the Bay, responded to this review

Hi Karen H. Great suggestion. After spending a day out on the East Coast, what better than to stop off at one of the great wineries such as Springvale, Devil's Corner, Gala or Miltons and pick up a bottle of wine to share in the cabins with some good cheese and crackers. Thanks for you kind review.

Enjoyed two nights here for my other half's birthday. The views from cabin one is spectacular! The sounds of crashing waves add to the atmosphere. The bedroom is comfortable, clean and a good size. The cabin itself is enough for two and there is a fully equipped kitchenette. Tap water must be boiled for at least a minute before consumption...

My wife and I were married at Hamptons on the Bay 10 years ago. We decided to return for our anniversary and what a surprise! The new owners have taken a fantastic venue and made it better.

Great location along the coast of oyster bay just out of Swansea away from the hustle and bustle but still a short drive away from all the amenities. Chris was very helpful and accommodating with the timing of our arrival. The boutique cabins were tastefully decorated, clean and comfortable with a stunning view of the sunrise every morning over the...

We spent two nights at Hamptons on the Bay. It's 10 minutes drive out of town on the cliffs with beautiful views. Chris the manager was so friendly and extremely helpful with where to visit and what to do. We stayed in a room of the newly renovated house and it's was absolutely beautiful. Would definitely stay there again.

Beautifully located beach cottages overlooking Oyster Bay. Two bedrooms ideal for Mum & Dad with small children or couples on there own. A little on the small side for three adults but compact and nicely furnished with everything you need. Main bedroom looked right out to sea and was comfortable.

We were really surprised and impressed. The cabins were very clean and tidy. As a young couple we have stayed at many places on the east coast and paid a lot more for the same experience. Now with a 1 year old, we found the tidy, secure cabins completely child friendly. Chris and the staff were very accomodating and full...

We stayed for four nights in March and loved the cosy cabins. The view is spectacular and we were treated to some beautiful sunrises, which we watched from the cabin. The view is over Oyster Bay with the Freycinet national park in the background, and for a Londoner the natural beauty is amazing. The cabins themselves are cosy and well...
