... our last day and after a leisurely breakfast we enjoyed our last moments of watching the waves while reading a book and did very little, a luxury after 3 full on days. We left the Resort at 2pm and were taken to the airport for our 4-30pm flight. It was a seven hour flight to Sydney during which we skipped a whole day.

A beautiful property in a great location. The friendliest and most helpful of hosts ever. Brom gives fantastic suggestions about what to do here, whether you have been before or are first timers in Sydney. Amazing breakfasts (including freshly squeezed orange juice), lovely rooms, gorgeous bathrooms and important for us, WiFi. Will be staying here when we return to Sydney.
