Very comfortable apartment (5.0/5)

Very comfortable accommodation opposite Christmas Cove. The apartment is fully self contained and well equipped. Sharon the owner is very helpful and friendly.


Nice compact unit with sea view. (5.0/5)

Sharon is a lovely. Helpful host. The unit is close to Penneshaw and the ferry. Only problem was unexpected roadworks in an otherwise quiet location. Near a little jetty and marina, restaurants and pub nearby.

NOTE: Roadworks have since been completed.

Shelley & Sam , San Francisco,

We loved our stay at The Rookery, our host couldn't have been better, she looked after our needs and gave us privacy. The apartment is modern, clean and comfortable. It was great to be walking distance to the little township and to wake up to the gorgeous water views each morning. We would definitely recommend and return to stay. It was amazing.
