We had a great stay in the Cottage. The location is very dramatic on the cliffs and the cottage is very spacious and well appointed. Pauline and Bruce are great hosts. We enjoyed the whitebait fritters - thanks Bruce. The Star Tavern within walking distance is a fine place.

We spent one night here and wish it could have been more. On the bluff at Cape Foulwind, beautiful gardens, wonderful hosts and several good restaurants quite close by. The cottage has a full kitchen, living room and separate bedroom. Only downside was the internet connection was a little weak, but that's ok, we didn't go there to be plugged...

There were 4 of us travelling and we stayed a night in the studio and cottage which suited us perfectly. The owners were away and we were able to let ourselves in. The cottage, where we all congregated, was very comfortable with good kitchen facilities and after a long drive we were happy to cater for ourselves. The views of...

I stayed at the studio for 1 night and had a great time. As I arrived the owners were there to great me, showed me around and made me feel right at home. The studio is a large room with everything you need: a great comfortable double bed, TV with sky, free Wifi, a sitting area and a nice kitchen....

If you are looking for a perfect ocean view this is the place, the cottage is 25 m from the edge of a cliff with idyllic views out westward over the Tasman sea, it is beautiful. Also perfect for exploring to the...

Stayed here with three mates in February 2014. Amazing property with fantastic friendly and welcoming hosts. We were made to feel like one of the family.

We stayed in the studio as the cottage was booked. Beautifully set out and more than I expected. Owners just wonderful, friendly and welcoming. We had a big wooden made table and chairs overlooking the cliff top to the steeples rocks, so we had nibbles and bubbles there before heading to the Star Tavern, 3 mins walk? a must to...

We'd booked these cottages anticipating meeting up in time for the evening view but a diverted flight meant a late arrival. None the less, the hosts were very friendly and helpful and the cottage was a comfy rest for the night. In the morning the views of the Steeples Rocks out to sea from the garden were stunning. A great...
