    Wow, what a relaxing experience. We have just returned from a one night stay in the coastal tents, and all I can say is WOW. The food was beautiful, the view gorgeous and the outdoor bath was relaxing. Would highly recommend this experience.

    Lovely venue! This would be a perfect spot for a wedding. Staff were friendly, Claudia especially had great customer service! Food was average but otherwise a great experience. Would come back sometime!

    What a stunning location to sleep in a "tent". Although not many tents come with a double bed, carpet, heating, a fridge, as much hot water as you need and food and wine provided for you. Admittedly you have to cook the food for yourself...More

    A fantastic place to stay in West Coast style and watch the Wild West coast sea. The colours and the sound were wonderful. The units are lovely and very self contained. What a view. We had a great time.
