Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doggy heaven Had a fantastic 3 night stay here with our 2 dogs. The house has everything you could wish for and the dogs loved exploring the property. The beach was so close and we often had it to ourselves so the dogs ran crazy - loved it. Great dog friendly property. Now that we have relocated to Tasmania we will definitely come back to stay here again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great location Enjoyed our time here with friends. Great location next to beach, and plently of space for the dogs to run around, who had a ball! We enjoyed playing cards up stairs in the sun room, gazing over the beautiful view of the beach and hazards!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from magical 3 days stay Three nights at this wonderful beach house went too quickly....what a special find! The house was so comfortable and well-equipped with all we could need and so much more. The beach was a hop, skip and jump away and so private it felt like it was 'our' beach as we barely ever had to share it with another soul! The views across to 'The Hazards' and to Swansea were just so beautiful and we felt so at peace in this lovely place we did not want to leave. A wonderful base to explore Freycinet and surrounds from - but just as nice to stay put in and relax. Would stay again in a moment....but next time for longer!!! Thank-you so much to the owners for sharing your little slice of Heaven with others.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tinka heaven We loved this place, so glad we took our bikes as great property to ride. Once we got used to the fire it was great but the sunroom was perfect for the day to relax in. It is like our own private little getaway, will definitely go back.
