Or check out the current menu of our homemade savoury pies. For just the 2 of you or for your reception of up to 40. Rain proof! Event only rental pricing differs from accommodation pricing.

Charles and his partner were wonderful loving people that fit right into Bowen's natural and laidback vibe. Look forward to seeing them again. Left the suite in perfect condition.

The place is simply enchanting. The ammonite shaped sink in the washroom stole my heart. And, because of the location, we managed to climb the mt. Gardner and visit the Tunstall beach on the same day! Dreamy.
