This is a nice property in a lovely place with plenty of space, kept clean and tidy. The only negative is probably the lack of reception and inadequate instructions for collecting the key. Why not email guests a few days before your stay and explain you need to collect the key from the museum on the main road. Instead there...

Large modern and nicely furnished house, very well taken care off, fully equipped kitchen, Freeview and DVD players with a small selection of DVD for everyone. View was even nicer than it looks like in photos and the house is about 10 minutes drive from Curio Bay. The place was spotless and the garden is very well look after too!...

The only difficult part about staying was that you will have to check in at the museum and info center, which is a 200m from the lodges itself, which I did not realize coming there. Other than that, I had a great experience. The beds were comfortable and clean, and the nice lady at the desk helped me find a...

Everything was immaculately clean and tidy and the kitchen was well equipped, we even managed to whip...

The Waikava Harbour View lodge is lovely, with beautiful views. We thoroughly enjoyed watching the moon come up and the sunrise the next morning. Clean, tidy, warm and beautifully presented. Everything needed for our group of 8, including kitchen equipment. It is hard to find good accommodation for 8 people. Great to have the option of arriving after 1pm (it's...

Here is a place that is very well set up and comfortable in a magnificent location, that has wonderful, helpful cleaning staff but gets the little things wrong! The owner knew the TV didn't work but did nothing about it (thus only dvd's were available). Our Saturday night meal was spoilt by incorrect information in the guest directory, which the...

We arrived late in the afternoon after a long drive and were amazed to find such a wonderful accommodation for us at such a reasonable cost. With only four of us in the party, we had excellent bedrooms and bathrooms to spare!!, Not to mention the spacious and well furnished lounge and the breathtaking view from the lounge and deck...

We stayed in one of the cottages and found it clean, cozy and very comfortable. It was well supplied and a very good value. Lovely, peaceful setting, well-kept grounds, modern cottage decor. The laundry was a bonus. The bed was comfy; we slept well and were able to prepare breakfast in the well-appointed kitchenette.
