We very much enjoyed our stay at Hectors Tiny House. The view and the spa pool are next level for relaxing with a glass of bubbles. The cottage was comfortable and well outfitted. Great shower and kitchen, adequate bed. We would definitely stay again. The prolific birdlife was a treat.

This bach is really special - it wow-ed us as soon as we arrived. It is relaxing and secluded, the spa has an amazing view, and even though it’s a tiny house there are all the utilities you need. The place is well looked after, tidy and comfortable.

Amazing property, will definately be coming back. The house had everything we needed and was very accommodating. Spa was great and coupled with the amazing view made it an incredible spot to relax.

A wonderful little holiday home perfect for a long weekend getaway for a couple. Basically a compact, small house that has all the standard amenities you could need. You do have to supply your own linen and towels but not a big deal. Lovely view over Duvauchelle Harbour area. No direct beach access as the bottom gate is locked, but I am not sure if there is even beach at the bottom. View from the spa is breath taking! Absolutely stunning. Paying for the view because the house is fairly basic. Worth it though. Very comfortable couch! Only downside was the tv reception can be a little patchy and the spa takes quite a while to heat up. But… you don’t go to a place like this to watch Tele and when the spa is hot the wait is totally worth it! I would stay again.

Very peaceful place to stay. We really enjoyed watching the sun set over the bay from the hot tub. Very clean and tidy, and although small, has everything you need.

The property was cute and quaint, very comfortable with absolutely stunning views. It was peaceful and everything was in great working order. The spa pool outside was the icing on the cake. We would definitely come back and would reccomend this to our friends and family 😊

Stayed July 2019

Pros: Fantastic views; lovely big secluded spa with fantastic views too; well appointed with every mod con; very clean and tidy; comfortable bed Cons: no indoor dining table; we both got armpit infections which were probably from the spa pool and which we reported to the owner

Thank you very much for your feedback, and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay at this very special spot. We appreciate your feedback about the spa pool, and apologise for any issues, and this has now been resolved for future guests.

This is an adorable tiny house which is super well kitted out, especially the kitchen! Full fridge freezer, mini gas oven and many plates and platters - if you bring all you need there's no need to leave. It's warm in the winter and the area is very quiet. The view is superb, and the spa is a glorious place from which to take it all in. It is a tiny house - meaning it's on wheels and blocks, so the house moves a little when you're walking around in - a bit disconcerting at first as it looks so permanent, but very quickly something you get used to and don't notice anymore. Definitely recommend as a good place to unwind.

Bachcare replied

Thank you so much for your feedback, we are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay so much, and agree that it is a very special spot!

Sharon

Such a great weekend at the tiny house! Perfect location, and though tiny, had everything we need! Sitting in the spa at sunset was just amazing! Will definitely come again!

Jeannie
Stayed September 2018

Beautiful view, really clean, friendly manager. We thought that it would have been fairer to have specified that this is actually a transportable trailer unit as opposed to a fixed dwelling. Small but has everything you need. Good parking and spa was a bonus.

Bachcare replied

Hi Jeannie, thank you for the feedback! We've amended the listing to make this clearer now. We love the spa too!
