“Stunning location, peace, quiet, nature and romance”
Reviewed January 8, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Stayed here for 7 nights in early December 13. This is a self contained house located on a cliff overlooking Balls Bay and they views are simply stunning. House is extremely private with its own private cliff top complete with picnic table. We spent many evenings here, surrounded by nature, talking and sharing countless bottles of wine.
The house itself has 3 bedrooms/2 bathrooms. Ensuite has a corner spa with spectacular views over the bay. Just divine. We rented the whole house for just the 2 of us, but it would easily accommodate 2 couples or a family with older kids. Not really suitable for young kids because of the cliffs.
The house itself is a little dated with 80's type décor/cottage décor. The owner advised that they will be renovating the house in 2014, so best to check beforehand.
We found the beds a bit soft for our liking, but I guess that's just a personal preference
Kitchen is well equipped for most meal preparation and the supermarket in town (5 mins drive away) stocks just about everything you'd need. If you have some special dietary requirement, may be best to take some packaged food with you, but they even had lactose free milk in the supermarket and as far as vegies were concerned, we just ate what was fresh and available at either the supermarket or the Sunday morning market..
House came with a car with unlimited klms. Car was in just OK condition, but fine to get around the island. House is close to everywhere and 5 mins drive from either town, the beach at Emily Bay or the Kingston area.
House comes with a laptop and free WIFI although the internet to the whole island was out when we were there, so don't rely on it. We actually found it very peaceful not being able to logon. Blackberry emails didn't work on the island either. House has some foxtel channels, but we made a decision to not watch any TV for the whole week and just enjoy the house and the views.
Despite a few flaws like the soft beds and outdated decor, we'd go back here in a heartbeat.
