Our first b & b experience and we loved it. The gardens and surroundings are spectacular and everything is just so lovely. There are short walks and hikes nestled amongst the valley and a lovely little spot for swimming too. Not to mention the relaxing places to sit and just enjoy each other's company. We will definitely be back. This...

Tam and Charles were wonderful hosts right from the start - Tam even took us around the property to show us where everything was. Charles lit up the "campfire" on the last night we were there :-) Both Tam and Charles were always more than happy to offer advise or recommendations in terms of places to visit and eat. Thank...

Upon arrival you are greeted by hosts Tam & Charles and provided information about the property, attractions and surroundings. We were lucky enough to have one night in The River Deck, but we could have stayed a week or more to enjoy the accommodation and property. Even though we only had one night we made the most of it, from...

An amazingly peaceful place of seclusion, we spent two nights and enjoyed every moment of this wonderful lodge. We highly recommend using the treehouse bath and the jacuzzi, and don't forget to grab a bucket and spade and make the trip to Hot Water Beach! We also went sea kayaking with Cathedral Cove Sea Kayaking while we stayed here, which...

The owners were very friendly, they gave us a tour of their ample property and were always around when we needed them. They were very helpful with directions and sites to stop at. I liked the privacy of the rooms away from the main house and the bedroom was lovely. I thought the bathroom was ok, but it was finished...

Truly, this place is amazing. Tam and Charles are perfect hosts - there when you need them, and not when you don't. The land itself is gorgeous, with many walking trails and a crystal clear stream to sit by and walk through and waterholes to swim in. And we did! Sitting in the outdoor bath with the sounds of the...

Picture this !! Your lodging is a B&B anchored amid 15 acres of native forest, flanked by creeks and swimming holes. We found our studio,cosy to the max with the swimming river a drop away. Breakfast was wonderful with lovely table setting. We love natural settings without crowds,so sleep was assured with the bird life at twilight amazing. Be aware...

Bit late on writing a review. We stayed here in early 2012, the only thing that let it down was the rain!!! Great place, loved it, would definitely recommend it to anyone, such a lovely relaxing location.
