We stayed here for 4 nights in December 2017. It was a real highlight of our 3 week trip in Australia. There are several cabins perched near the cliffs of Stokes Bay which give you stunning views onto the sea and surrounding area. If you’re looking for peace and tranquility with amazing views then this is the place for you.
With regard to wildlife, then there’s plenty of kangaroos and wallabies here to keep you company. We met Paul who manages the properties on our first day there and he let us feed them with barley and they flocked from all round for the feed. They are friendly and curious creatures. He also told us where we might come across some koala’s and we did indeed find one up a eucalyptus tree within walking distance of the cottages.
The location of the cottages is perfect and they are also well equipped, spacious clean and tidy with a lovely balcony to take in the views in the morning and the evening. You may even get a visit by a possum as well in the evening which we did. There is also a TV in there with a broad selection of channels and complimentary wine and honey (thanks Paul, that wine was lovely by the way).
Overall, I would highly recommend. The kangaroos and wallabies will happily pop by to see you and say hello.
