Arrived late Good Friday night after a very bouncy trip over Bass Strait only to be greeted by Sue who was an absolute gem. Sue suggested the local fish shop for dinner & we were able to have a nice meal then return to a cosy room that oozed Sue's bubbly character. A boutique accommodation , quiet & spotless.

We stayed there just for a nite. We arrived in a spotless clean apartment. The owners are really friendly and we really felt welcome from the very beginning. We stayed in a one-bedroom apartment. The second bed was a sleeping chair (Is that the correct word? Like an armchair that could be converted into a bed for one person). The...

Just stayed for a night on Dec 05, 2013 and we have been highly impressed. Very comfortable bed, room rate is reasonable and area was clean with location closed to many tourist spots. Hosts Sue & Keith are very friendly. Highly recommended !

These apartments are great. Well equipped and comfortable. The only down side was that there was no room in the bathroom to set a toiletry case, and the counter for the suitcase was so tight it did not allow for the lid of the case to open. Also, the vertical blinds do not darken the room very well. There was...
