We just had one night in this delightful B&B, with Gay making us feel so welcome. We had a lovely room, with ensuite facilities and a patio (unfortunately the weather was not good enough to be able to sit out!). Gay was wonderful company and we spent some good time with her over a glass of wine or 2! A...

Absolute delight to stay at Charming Creek B & B and wished could of stayed for more than one night. Fantastic, lovely host, location is to die for, amenities are the best and oh so clean!! One bummer was we never managed to get a sneak peak at the very shy Blue Penguins that live on and around the properties.

Two weekends ago my wife and I had a weekend away at the Charming creek b&b. I couldn't rate it more highly. We had a wonderful time mostly due to the hostess who is really remarkable. She went out of her way to make the stay as enjoyable as possible. As well as that she is a laugh a minute....

This lovely couple were a pleasure to have stay - interested in the history of the area, truly wanting to relax, and great fun. Guests like this are what keeps me in the hospitality business wanting to share my country with others. Thanks

From the minute we arrived, Gay made us feel so welcomed and special. Our room was perfect, immaculate and cosy. Very spoilt with our breakfasts and of course "the four legged kids" were a delight to have around. Hopefully we will be able to return one day. If you stay, make sure you meet the locals at the pub which...

Nice and peaceful place next to the beach so you can hear the ocean at night. Unfortunately the weather wasn't too nice but the cosy fireplace kept us warm. Gay was very welcoming, set up a lovely breakfast for us - as we were the only ones we felt very spoilt! :) Had lots of fun playing with the two...

We spent two wonderful nights in this lovely secluded spot so aptly named, with a beach all to yourself just across the road, a friendly local tavern and a stone's throw from Granity. Gay was the perfect host, full of local knowledge, and very accommodating. The room was exceptionally tidy and very cosy. A great shower - with fantastic water...

The Lonely Planet Guide describes Charming Creek Bed and Breakfast as charming and it is. This little place, across the road from the beach, has just three rooms. Each has a patio door facing the small parking area (just enough for three cars), which allow access to the rooms without going through the main part of the house. The rooms...
