Fodor's Review

Pure romance here: a short walk across soft green grass from your own luxury cottage or studio unit gets you across your own quiet beach to the sea. Sunsets are sometimes enhanced by the company of blue penguins, arriving home from a day out fishing to their nest just up the creek. Daytimes you can swim, kayak, paddleboard (complimentary boards and kayaks available) or just wander the beach. A night the doors and windows can be left open so the sound of the sea lulls you to sleep. To get there drive down the signposted driveway and out toward the coast. Stop just before the sea. Rates include a breakfast hamper crammed with fresh, local produce, delivered to the units each morning.
