Uniquely sublime !!!
You just run out of superlatives here. The privacy is unmatched, anywhere we've stayed. A whole headland and two beaches to yourself. The property is magnificently designed, built and positioned. The master-suite, with uninterrupted views over the ocean, out to the islands, and an auto-sliding roof for star-gazing, just can't be beaten. The indoor pool was excellent for a late swim once the sun had gone down, and a glass of red watching the sunset with kangaroos for company... well, enough said. Spoil yourself !
