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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic isolated wild and wonderful awesome isolated accommodation , which is exactly what we were looking for for us and all our young adults and their partners , everything you need is here , far enough away from Marion Bay to be away from people but close enough if you want to be . Fantastic views , private beach , surprising waterhole, great fishing , beaches ,surfing nearby , quality bedding and comfy beds , plenty of room for families to be separated if you want to , or to all be together , enough bathrooms and toilets to have no complaints and the owner is very obliging with everything , loved it
