  • Outstanding property in an outstanding location. The pictures do not do it justice. Property is larger than it looks in the pictures, and the beach and restaurants are a stroll down...

  • Beautiful location and property, lovely large living area and great table for group dinners, the outside was stunning and it was simply a wonderful place to stay. Great facilities and book supply, only issue we had was no dishwasher tablets or dish washing liquid, but such a minor issue easily remedied. We would definitely stay again.

  • We absolutely loved the Church House. Sometimes online photos can make a place look bigger, but when we turned up to the Church House it was even better than we imagined. Stunning location, very large space, very well fitted out, super comfortable. We will definitely be back.
    Tessa King, Feb 2014

  • The property we transferred to was in a beautiful location looking out to Palm Beach - the property itself was simple and stylish with modern comforts, was also lovely having an open fire being winter time.
    Joanna Welsby, May 2013
  • The church house is a magic spot...we will definitely be back!
    Courtenay O'Brien, Feb 2013 
  • We had a great time at the Church House. The view from the garden is to die for and the house itself is lovely and spacious. It's five minutes walk to the beach via a steep set of steps called Jacob's Ladder or a slightly longer walk through bush. The kids particularly loved the swing and the outdoor beanbags and I loved the selection of books.
