The view from all of the rooms was absolutely stunning. We definitely recommend to book the Stormy Petrel Room as the bedroom looks out over the cliffs.

The view from these apartments is fabulous and it’s a short walk to the beach. BUT... there were significant water issues. It was impossible for two people to take consecutive short showers and both have hot water. Also, the tap water, rainwater, while safe to drink, tasted unappealing. The bed was fine and the cooking facilities adequate for simple meals, if rather cramped. We would try to find other accommodations another time where we didn’t feel that we were camping at a rather expensive price.

This place was amazing - quiet, beautiful scenery. No TV in the cabins but we were not really there long enough anyway. Clean - firewood available. No internet connection except with Telstra xx No shops nearby so stock up.

Overpriced but recommended with caveat
At $300 a night these units are overpriced for the service provided relying on the natural features of their location to make them desirable. For $300 a night it is unusual to be told to make sure you take out the trash and clean and put away all dishes to enable the owners to manage a fast turnover and "avoid surcharges". For $300 a night I expect room service at least equivalent to a motel - they can take out the trash and do any minor wash up and still enable fast turnover so what is wrong with this mob other than attitude. Having to stuff kitchen paper under a dividing door to the adjoining unit to avoid overhearing every word of a normally lively family next door discussion was annoying.

We stayed in the modern cabin and the views were amazing! Great location if you are looking for a secluded getaway to unplug. We ordered the pre-prepared breakfast and dinner package and everything was delicious!
