My wife and I spent 3 nights at "The Shackeau" which is right on the clifftop looking down the beach at Southport. The views are exceptional especially with the sunrise in the morning and sunset in the evening. The house has two bedrooms, one toilet/bathroom and a large lounge/eating area. The kitchen is small but well fitted out (including microwave). Lovely wood burning stove heats the house nicely. There is also a reverse cycle air conditioner (heat pump). As the sun was shining, we found that we did not need to use the heating much. There is a balcony plus another area where you can sit and enjoy the view. The property also provides a BBQ, bikes and fishing rods. There is no TV. Only one store and a Hotel (at the other end of town and a car is required) so make sure you bring all your main supplies with you. It is reasonably close to Hastings Cave, Ida Bay Railway and Cockle Creek. Would definitely recommend. Limited wifi access through 3G.

We stayed in a two bedroom cottage, it had stunning views of the bay and had beautiful finishes and furnishings. The beds for comfortable, kitchen well stocked and the spa was great too. Highly recommend it.

What a delight to arrive at the driftwood cottages with such stunning views. We stayed in the Huon Cottage which was right on the roadside. My first thought was the road noise would be disruptive, however, it was not noticeable at all and we had a comfortable and restful sleep. In the morning, opening the curtains to a magnificent view made this one of my most memorable stays. The room was a delight, plenty of room, great kitchen and they even had a Nespresso coffee machine - Whoo Hooo. We had people in the adjoining cottage but did not hear any noise at all, so well sound proofed. Easy check-in after hours with friendly staff. Will definitely be back when next in Dover.

We had a wonderful experience, from booking to checking out. The staff were friendly and very helpful, the accommodation was excellent, very comfortable, clean, private and well catered for. The hot tub was a big hit. The accommodation is right on the water front, great views and very peaceful. Highly recommended for a recharge getaway, suitable for couples and families as well. We will be back.

Great unit with fully equiped kitchen and laundry within a short walk to the local RSL for a drink or a meal. Good location if you are going to Ida Bay for the train ride or to Hastings for the Caves and Thermal Springs.
