Incredible view and beautiful house. Great coffee, good breakfast. Lovely soft bed and comfortable lounge area. Sarah welcomed us and was available if we needed anything. A bit pricey but definitely worth it for a special occasion.

Our family were lucky enough to stay in this beautiful beach house for a week in August. The views of Bushman's River and the sea are beyond breath-taking, it’s so easy to watch the ever changing scenes from the comfort of the deck. The house is five star luxury, with modern furnishings and has everything that you could possibly need....

Absolutely love this spot! Fantastic attention to detail - you feel like you're in your own wonderful space, not a rental. Wonderfully done out. Relaxed and beachy but still 5-Star luxury accommodation with no compromises. Honestly couldn't fault it. Would stay four times a year in a perfect world! Can't wait to come back in summer, although it was perfectly...

To keep it short - I've listed my experience in point form. - Found old chicken bones in the upstairs study. - Lipstick stains on the hand towel in the bathroom. - Popcorn between the couches. Overall, everything felt as if it had been re-used from whoever stayed there the night before. And to the "owner" who may reply to...

Dear Brad, I am sorry that you experienced these short comings during your stay. As you can see from our other reviews, this is not a reflection of the standards we strive for. There are times when our staff are stretched due to leave schedules or occupancy, but this is no excuse for any element of cleanliness as you say,...

My family and I recently stayed only one night at the Oyster Shack which is the sister location across the road from the Oyster Box. It was extremely well appointed and comfortable with all the things you would want and more in self catering accommodation. We were greeted at the house by Sarah who gave us the keys and told...
