Why Susie Lawrence chose Point Leo
We bought this property of 3 acres over 22 years ago when it was a bare block of land. We chose to live here as Rod surfed here for many years and we were always coming here so we thought why not a sea change as it would be good for our children as well to live in a country, coastal village. We have not looked back on this change in our lives.
What makes this Apartment unique
A Rod is a builder we designed and built our house. We chose a country style mud brick, two story design as we both love being in touch with nature and mud brick allows the feeling of being earthed with nature. We have planted over 1,200 trees and this is only doing the boundary of the property. Once our children left home and still live close by we then decided to change one of the spaces into a loft design self contained apartment this is we you the traveller will stay. Our design of our house is based on the 8 sided octagon in feng shui to allow the energy to flow through the our whole area. As Sue is a massage therapist, healer, yoga teacher and ceramic artist Rod has built specifically designed rooms to cater for those modalities. When you stay you can choose to enjoy a massage, private yoga class or a private pottery lesson in the Mud Shack. As we love gardening and nature we have created many garden rooms around the property from the moon garden for meditation, bonsai area for contemplation to the orchard and veggie patches where we aim to grow a lot of our own food. Rod and Sue welcome you to their share in the energy of their home when you stay.

Lovely place, everything we needed for a relaxing weekend
Quiet, private and a lovely place to stay.
Close to some wonderful vineyards and restaurants and a great location to do some sight-seeing from.
Susie is a wonderful host giving attention to every detail. She even had a gift for my birthday which I was celebrating that weekend.The accommodation is very clean and comfortable, with ample breakfast provisions.I also had a massage and card reading which were the highlights of my retreat. It is an easy stroll to the beach. Point Leo is one of the Peninsula' best kept secrets. I hope to return and would certainly recommend Susie & Rod's place for anyone looking for a peaceful getaway

Our stay at this beautiful Point Leo retreat
My wife and I stayed two nights at this Point Leo property and wholly enjoyed the experience. Sue and her husband were very helpful in giving us advice and showing us around the gardens. The room was spectacular with a very cosy bedroom area with a balcony looking over a splendid garden. There is also a lounge /TV area and an ample kitchen and bathroom. The hosts left plenty of food for breakfast including fruit and condiments farmed from property. The location is 5 minutes walk from the beach.
We will definitely stay again.
