We have just spent three wonderful nights at the Buttercup. Made so welcome by Eveleen with coffee and home made biscuits whilst she explained everything. Everything we wanted or needed was in the room - even towel and umbrella for the beach with instructions on where to sit according to the wind direction! Our room was extremely comfortable and the...

We just spent the most amazing three days staying with Evaleen at The Buttercup. The warmth of the welcome showed to myself and my wife still resonates. Beyond the beautiful beachfront setting, the lovely home filled with exquisite antiques and treasures, the fabulous breakfasts and the sensation of being lulled to sleep by the sound of the rolling surf was...

The house is perfectly located for great views over the lagoon, particularly from the upstairs verandah. As mentioned in other posts, the hostess has a lovely relaxed manner about her and the accommodation is spotless but casual. So maybe the wifi could be better - you can't connect from the rooms. Breakfast is ordered by item the previous afternoon and... More

It felt like staying at Grandma's beach house, more a home than a hotel. You're be lucky to have such a grandma. She's friendly and eager to help. You get a basket with towels for the beach, a small bottle of wine and delicious breakfast (order what you want the day before). The house is steps away from a small... More

We were Buttercup's last guests of the season. The lady of the house, Eveleen, welcomed us as if we were family and made us feel so comfortable. Her accommodation is spick and span, warm and homely.

We stayed at The Buttercup in March, what a lovely, homely place to stay. Our host Eveleen was full of energy and nothing was too much trouble.
