Wonderful stay!
Amazing location, loungers on the beach, fabulous beach front alfresco dining, on site restaurant served great food with a homely touch. Service was impeccable yet casual and friendly. Large rooms, nice bathrooms. The fit out of the room is nice but fairly basic if comparing to a 4-5 star hotel

2/10 Poor

The location is beautiful. But the seaview room we stayed in was more 3 star motel than what we expected for the price. Dismal customer relations from the management, trying to charge us after we left for ferry tickets we had already paid for

The beach house is in a lovely bay that is shared with just a few other homes so it is very private. Our hosts, were absolutely wonderful...considerate & charming. We had a fabulous seafood platter for lunch & an excellent 3 course degustation evening meal .A great hot breakfast came with the tariff. Accomodation was beautifully appointed.. Would recommend The Beach House for a lovely getaway , good food , good wine good service in beautiful surroundings.

Amazing stay! 5 star service! We were met on the pier where Luke carried out bags and showed us around. We received a free upgrade and had an amazing relaxing stay! We will definitely be back again! No need to go to Fiji or Tahiti! You can escape to paradise here!

Great relaxed high end place
Spent two nights in January and it was very relaxed and beautiful. The manager and chef are awesome. Exceptional service and very very good food - but be aware that you will be limited to a few options from the hotel as that's the only place to eat. It's a fun but low key beach with day visitors coming on boats.
