If you're looking for a real getaway from the 'rat race', this is the perfect destination. Brian and Lyn are great hosts, my husband and I have never been treated so well. I felt like royalty, all meals gourmet and cooked to perfection, served with great company, as well as your favourite drop. A romantic escape for couples who are...

What would I do to surprise my hard working husband? A weekend away where he could totally relax; Looking for that elusive getaway I started searching and not wanting to drive anywhere I thought further afield. Keswick Island was one of three locations on my short list. Wanting to be pampered and not have to cook was the top of...

If you are looking for a romantic weekend away with private time, this is not the place. Keswick Island might be the place, but certainly not the guest house. If you are looking to be a guest at your Auntie's house (on a gorgeous island) who doesn't like children and her kooky husband who bills himself as a "museo" aka...

Brian & I are more than disappointed with the comments that have been made here; we are actually quite shocked; we genuinely believed these guests enjoyed their stay. If at any time guests are unhappy with any aspect of the service or anything at all we are only too happy to rectify the situation. It is unfortunate this couple did...

After having visited the Keswick Island Guesthouse for the third occasion it was about time to question why. Could it be the delicious meals that Lyn prepares for lunch and dinner? There is always something different and tantalising for the taste buds. Each meal is presented beautifully and can be guaranteed to satisfy your appetite. Not that Brian can be...

I was extremely fortunate to spend my 40th birthday (long weekend) at Keswick Island. From the moment we stepped off the helicopter the stress just seemed to melt away. We were met at the airstrip by Brian and Lyn and their enormous smiles which never seem to faulter. I cannot rave enough about Lyn's food and the hospitality of the...

Stayed here for 4 nights and had a wonderful time with warm and lovely hosts Brian and Lyn. All we had to do was sit back and relax, enjoy the beautiful view, eat the divine meals (Lyn is the best cook!) and take a heavenly dip in the sea every once in a while. The rooms are quite big, clean...
