    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.

  • 6.0.Good

    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.

    Romantic Seculded Getaway

    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!

  • 4.0.Fair

    Die Unterkunft war sehr schmutzig, Kücheneinrichtung alt, der Herd stank nach altem Fett. Überall viele Spinnweben. Am Abreisetag kein Wasser. Das einzig gute an der Unterkunft ist die Aussicht.

    Super Aufenthalt

    Ein super schöne Wohnung (Stormy Petrol) an der Küste. Super Sicht auf das Meer und den Strand. Tolle Glasfront wo man alles sehen kann. Ungestört in der Wildness. In der Nacht kann man super die Sterne beobachten. Das Catering ist der Hamma. Ich kann es nur jeden empfehlen.
