We stayed in the Dune 'hideaway' - it was a truly wonderful escape. The breakfast hamper was amazing and refreshed each day, the hideaway itself was beautifully finished and designed. Paul and Lisa were lovely, accommodating and helpful. I would recommend the walk down the beach

We had 3 great nights here. It’s not the common 5 star hotel luxury, but a private getaway in a fantastic (luxe and spacious) cottage. We had a warm welcome from Lisa and Paul (and their retired dog) and after settling in we found this a great, very private hide away. The

Thank you Hans, we loved that you thought the layout of your Bush Hideaway worked perfectly. That you loved your path to the beach and the ease of your own private parking spot. We do look forward to having you back to stay. Best Regards Lisa

We stayed for two nights in mid December and this was the perfect spot for a pre Christmas freshen up. Delicious breakfast provisions, comfy bed, lovely birdsong, and a short stroll to the beach! What more could you want?

We had a wonderful stay in the Dune Hideaway and Lisa made us feel very welcome. The breakfast supplies were super generous and delicious, the bed was comfy, and the outdoor spa bath was divine. Hopefully we’ll manage to get back and stay again! Donna & Lindon

Dune's private outdoor spa - VERY relaxing!
View from bed (Dune suite) - past all those tea trees is the Beach Suite
Wi fi is poor...the property is tucked in the sanddunes so I imagine it would be virtually impossible to get strong wifi there. For me....that actually was a selling point as I live a really busy life and was after a “getaway” from everyday noise (internet was the main thing I needed removing for the 3 days) I have heard you can go to the main house if you need wifi and use theirs

"Select the 'Bush' unit"
"All rooms are totally different - we chose the African themed room which was amazing"
"all 3 houses are top"
"Be careful entering the beach via the private track at night. It's very hard to find your way back!"
"Beach house is stand alone, but all three are private enough. Choose to your preference of style."
