The accommodation itself was nice enough but unfortunately the owner (or perhaps some other guests?) were having a rather loud party late into the night which wasn't ideal considering I booked the accommodation in the hope it would be a quiet retreat as I had to get up at 4am for my flight from the nearby Avalon airport. With less than 4 hours sleep, needless to say, I didn't have a very pleasant experience at this accommodation.

Loved the location, and the host was very friendly and accommodating. The room was nicely furnished and the bathroom was large, clean and inviting. If anything, the room could have had an area for dining at, although it was not an issue for me this time. I will be back.

Janita was very friendly and helpful when making our booking. Excellent, fast communication. She made sure we had all we needed for a comfortable stay. The rollaway for our youngest was comfortable, as was the rest of the bedding in the room. The decor was lovely and the hammock on the balcony was a highlight.
