Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent location I was so delighted with the property's location and the size of the house to sleep 20+ people. It was a perfect location to choose for a quiet secluded wedding where noone had to drive home and there are plenty of place's to explore on the way there and the return drive. Sean was an ecellent host and gave instant help with any queries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning house with stunning views Just spent 4 nights relaxing with friends and family at Matjala for my 30th. So much to see and do including Innes national park just a short drive away. Sean was very friendly and welcoming. Even managed to take my girlfriend and I out on the boat Monday morning for a quick fish to top off the perfect weekend. By far my most enjoyable stay at Marion Bay to date.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Winter Escape Total seclusion. Relax around the log fire and watch the weather roll in. Our dog loved the short strolls to the beach when the sun came out. One of the best pet friendly beach houses we have been lucky enough to enjoy.
