Summer 2016/17 was another fun season for us with guests sharing laughter as well as those in-depth interesting conversations, adventurous walks, quiet bird tours, sunsets and of course dinners!
Winter 2017 brings those cooler nights by the fire, while the days offer strong low-angled sunlight great for landscape photography, it's often wonderful and sunny, not too cold and oh so peaceful! Walk the beach, kayak on the reflective lagoon and enjoy some new wines, with home cooked dinner.
Spring and Summer 2017/18, get planning! Ask about our multi-night discount when you book at least one month in advance, directly with the lodge. You need time to really enjoy this place. (Not available over the Christmas & New Year period or to agents).
