My wife and I stayed at By the Beach last weekend and we can't find any negatives for the room, location or overall experience. Our delightful hosts, Greg and Jan, have created a superb B&B experience from the architectural design right through to the innumerable inclusions and hearty, generous breakfast. The beautiful bush setting overlooks the water with the beach... More

I have been very unwell so chose childfree accommodation where I could rest when needed and just get away from it all. The location is very quiet and there is a lovely little deck where you can sit and daydream or read. There is also a nice 10k walk that starts at the bottom of the basin and weaves it... More

The owners are very nice and the rooms are excellent, with a large lounge kitchenette area as well as bed area and bathroom . However the rooms have cold concrete floors so you will need your slippers. If you are a little older the bed is very low but comfortable.

Thank you for your lovely review. You are right about the slippers but in AUGUST just about every place in Australia apart from maybe Queensland gets cold at night. I hope you appreciated the warm sun coming in to your apartment during the day through the large north facing windows. We have found that this warms the polished concrete floors... More

Thanks to Greg and Jan for a lovely stay at By The Beach B&B.

Thank you Luke and Naomi for your lovely review. You get the award for the most comprehensive review ever. Can think of a couple of occasions in our travels when we wish we had black plastic bin liners to block out the morning light. Have never thought of that. I would probably forget to take some clips!

Greg and Jan run a superb B & B. Architect designed to their specification, all the details work. Each unit opens onto a garden overlooking St Georges Bay with steps leading down to a sandy beach.
