Yes it's expensive but you get what you pay for. Stefano Manfredi, Geoffrey, Clementine, Chef THANK YOU SO MUCH. Greeted by Stefano himself upon our arrival and Geoffrey and Clementine the adventure continued from there. Champagne, wine cocktails anything you desire...but let's move onto the food.

Just returned from staying at Pretty Beach House after a wonderful time there. Our hosts Jeffrey and Clementine were exceptional - nothing was too much trouble. The food was stunning, the chef accommodated our requests as needed. The accommodation was faultless, the view from our room (Bayview) was spectacular. Highly recommend staying there when you want to have a special... More

We have just concluded a weekend away at PBH and couldn't rate it more highly. Firstly the food - simple, house made and utterly delicious. My personal highlight was breakfast; the house made pastries were sensational. Dinner was a 5 course degustation and each night was a gastronomic delight. But the team is what makes this place such a success... More

We thought the Pretty Beach House was pretty, our accommodations spacious, food well-prepared and the on-site hosts, Joe Barnes and Geoffrey Veivers, were wonderful. However, we thought that the per person, per night charge was excessive for this facility. We have stayed at five star resorts before and several that include meals and "selected beverages" and nearly all offered a... More

I spent four nights here for a significant celebration. There are no comments in previous reviews with which I disagree. We found it a little hard to find as the entrance is only a driveway with a 23 number. We did not have the code for the automatic gates but some other guest exiting let us in. It would have... More

This is one of the best places we have ever stayed. The staff members welcome you and treat you as if you are royalty, but also treat you as family.
