The cottages are on a steep hill overlooking Stokes Bay. Clean, quiet, with everything you need to cook (self-catering). The owners left us a hand written note welcoming us along with a small jar of local honey, a bottle of wine and a bar of chocolate by the bed!..all gestures that were appreciated. The view from the verandah overlooking the...

The best and most touchy hotel on the island. Just next on the sea shore, amazing views, de luxe accommodation. Kangaroos and just everywhere around hotel - no need even to go anywhere else. I will probably recommend all my Russian friends to stay there while traveling throw Australia.

We recommend a high number as the views improve the further down the hill you go. The cabins are very basic but you come here for the ocean views, beach and one-on-one time...

We stayed three nights here and thoroughly loved every minute. Everything about Waves and Wildlife was truly magical to us. We fell in love completely with the kangaroos, especially "spike", who we named after the gremlin, as she has a white splodge on her head. The cottage itself suited our needs perfectly and sitting on the verenda at night listening...

Sometimes on vacation, it feels nice to feel home. After staying in hotels for a while, it felt just like home to stay in that cottage. everything we needed was there, we just brought our food and we could just lounge around, take it easy. From the balcony, you can see the ocean, directly in front of the cottage. If...
