“A very special place!”
Reviewed 21 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We had a wonderful four night stay here. The views from the house are spectacular, overlooking what is said to be one of the most beautiful harbours in the world(I would agree).Whether it is watching the rain coming in or the early morning mist rising the views are ever changing. We stayed in the large double ensuite bedroom which was luxurious and very spacious with everything you could need. We loved lounging on the bean bags on the large wrap around deck and cooking in the the lovely large kitchen. Terry the owner was so welcoming and hospitable and great fun. The surrounding area is a must see,beautiful beaches and numerous walks. A real treat is taking a water taxi around the harbour and then spending time on a deserted sandy cove! We really hope to visit again very soon. Thank you Terry for allowing us to share your 'top spot".

“Spectacular views”
Reviewed 24 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

The 360 degree views from Terry's house are truly amazing. It was a great place for us to relax on a choice of verandahs taking in the views and reading or eating or sipping wine on large comfy bean bag lounges late into the serenity of the moonlit evenings. No mozzies! The rooms are new, spotlessly clean and very comfortable.
This place is very special, as is the host Terry who couldnt be more friendly and willing to share his local knowledge and also the fasinating stories of his travels. I would definitely stay here again. Thanks Terry for a truly memorable stay!

My daughter and I had a two day holiday here and we left, refreshed and rejuvenated. It was peaceful and we totally relaxed. The breakfast included a wonderful marmalade. Thank you to Terry for looking after all our needs. I liked the view and the very comfortable bed.

Marguerite! it was lovely hosting you and your daughter here; you wisely did not mention the cream in your coffee which your daughter disapproved of!- well, as the saying goes "what the eye does not see, the heart does not grieve over". Looking forward to your return here some day soon! Terry.
