Stayed May 2021

Lovely property great location and excellent facilities. Definitely want to return and spend longer relaxing in the stunning location.

Stayed April 2021

What a spectacular view and wonderful property to "decompress" and read a book. For those who like a bit of exercise there is a walkway with 3 - 4 hr return tramp up the hill directly opposite the driveway with views that are worth the sweat. Something for everyone.

Stayed January 2021

Amazing location and great facilities, we loved the private beach and the use of the kayaks and paddle boards. The house was comfortable enough but didn't quite meet our expectations given the high price. Overall we had a great holiday.

Stayed January 2021

Location and large deck were wonderful. Bach itself a little disappointing. Much older than pictures portrayed. Main beds very saggy and uncomfortable. Kayaks looked great but actually very heavy to lift down steep slippery path and incredibly difficult to steer compared to other kayaks. Lack of WIFI in current climate of potential Covid lockdowns also an issue. Overall would have expected more for the money.

Bachcare replied

We are happy to hear you enjoyed the great location of Aquamarine Dreams. As the Kayaks provided are double Kayaks they are a little heavier than a single person Kayak. We would recommend having two people carry these down to the water. This property does not have WiFi allowing time to disconnect, however you can use the 'WiFi' filter when searching for your next stay.

Brilliant views from a large deck. Families with children are well catered for with toys and playground equipment. Generally the property had the essentials but didn't include an iron or board, dishwasher and no WiFi. There is service available but not via WiFi. The beds were comfortable and the views were amazing from every room but there were a few things that bought my rating down to about a 3 out of 5. It's not luxurious but if the views are the most important thing for you, then you will get them with this property.

Thanks for your review Darwin and you're right about the views being spectacular here! Aquamarine Dreams doesn't have Wifi as some guests like to get away from it all - we always clearly state whether a property has WiFi. You can use the 'WiFi' filter when searching for your next stay, and also check the amenities list for your preferred amenities.

Stayed January 2020

Wonderful views in a cute bach right on the water. Lots of toys for kids - our daughters had a blast.

Stayed December 2019

Lovely property with great views. Beach only accessible at low tide down a steep track which elderly people may struggle with.
