Excellent, comfortable stay. Great for children with a range of beds & endless supply of books, toys and beach equipment to keep them occupied!

Beachside get away for the family

5 of 5
Our family of six including two teenage boys and young girls enjoyed the opportunity to safely explore the local bush and beaches and find a quiet spot on the observation deck. The kitchen, lounge room and games meant the TV and internet were not missed. A pleasant one hour drive to Tidal River at Wilsons Prom' and the walks were spectacular. It was a great way of breaking our trip up to Dinner Plains via the Great Alpine Road.
