A great place to stay. We were made very welcome. An ideal venue for touring in the area. We did get a little lost finding the house, perhaps more details required for directions. Well decorated rooms and more than adequate equipment.

We recently had a family reunion with number of guests changing frequently. We had to get extra accommodation which was the Tin Shack to accommodate everyone and we all loved the tin shack. Tanya was amazing in accommodating our many changes. The accommodation was very comfortable and decor fun and quirky. Very well equipped.

We had an amazing weekend here. Excellent accommodation and fantastic hosting. It will forever be a very special memory and experience. The accommodation was clean and tastefully furnished. The friendly dogs added to the character and relaxed nature of this getaway.

Stayed for 2 nights. The cottage was tastefully decorated, clean and a pleasure to stay. The estuary is close enough to enjoy and you get Puzzles (dog) thrown in for good company. Cape St Francis is lovely holiday place to enjoy kayaking in and around the estuary that flows between the houses. A very relaxing and enjoyable place to stay.

Thank AvrilandAndre
