The cabins are lovely, well equipped and spotless with fantastic views. A beautiful spot for a break or an overnight stay with very welcoming owners. Highly recommended for families, couples or individuals with something to suit everyone.

They were incredible, delicious! Breakfast was fresh and perfect to be able to cook how you wanted. Beds were very comfortable, shower was powerful and aircon...

But, we had arrived Nowra on the 5th and it was extremely hot and still. We called SCR and asked Simon if we could check in a day early. He...

Our dog had a great time as we could go for walks near the water. The waterfront was clean and provided with bins and doggy bags for dog owners as well as...

The staff a friendly and very helpful, they were able to tell us where the best beaches were and where to go. The glamping tent was clean and welcoming and we found it very spacious.

Went glamping for the first time with my family here. We had such a good time! The tent was fully furnished as if we were staying in a cabin but had the feel of 'camping', the patio was a good place to sit and relax for breakfast & dinner. Plenty of grass area for my toddler to run around. Staff...
