This would be one of the top luxury lodges of Australia. The décor and amenities were first class and the staff headed by the manager Joe were attentive and helpful. We liked the fact that although it was not a cheap tariff everything was included. The chef was excellent and the wines we were served were great. We particularly enjoyed the welcome to country smoking ceremony presented by Wubula, a local aboriginal elder who not only gave us an excellent talk but danced and played the didgeridoo. it was the best indigenous Australian ceremony and talk we have had anywhere. It was amazing that there were old carvings on the rocks on the property. There are great walks and views and we enjoyed having our own private pool. A spa with a great masseur. A wonderful spoil.

I was really hoping this place would remain a secret. Just tried to book and can't get in on the dates I want! Oh well . . . so I thought I may as well let a few other people know. Pretty Beach House is the most private, peaceful, perfect place I've ever stayed. If you like bushwalking or mountain bike riding through national park to secluded beaches, it's a must. If you like doing nothing much at all and just eating amazing food looking at a perfect view, it's probably even better.

Just returned from staying at Pretty Beach House after a wonderful time there. Our hosts Jeffrey and Clementine were exceptional - nothing was too much trouble. The food was stunning, the chef accommodated our requests as needed. The accommodation was faultless, the view from our room (Bayview) was spectacular. Highly recommend staying there when you want to have a special weekend away.
