Hide away gem!
Our family had five interesting days at Ratcliff Cottage and found the house clean, well supplied with cooking equipment and functioned well for us all. We enjoyed exploring the property and watching the wildlife (we were naming the kangaroos by the end of our stay). Some advice; if you like to swim in the lagoon having some dive shoes (neuprene) to walk out to the water will help as the rocks are sharp on bare feet (thongs get stuck in the mud). As the place runs completely on rainwater be conservative but if the power goes off you can get water from the tap at the front of the veranda. My husband and I were intrigued by the history of the cottage, and used the pictures to work out how the place has been preserved and extended. Some more history would have been great. Thanks for a lovely break from the noise of the city and to really 'stop'. Regards Bronte and family.
Great views...loved the kangaroos
We really enjoyed our time here. We felt like we were all alone but close enough to town to get what we needed. The best part was watching the kangaroos eating and playing all day long. And the cottage was great too. Thanks so much.
Thank you for your kind review, we're so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Ratcliff Cottage and hope to see you again!
The cottage is in an excellent location both to relax-no passing traffic neighbours, and to explore the island. . The grounds were very dry and barren during our January visit. The cottage could do with a deep clean and refresh paint, but is spacious, well equipped with good linens and towels. We had an enjoyable week, particularly enjoying the quiet and wildlife-the number of kangaroos so close to the cottage is very impressive.
We loved having no neighbours, the beautiful house in a magnificent setting, sitting in front of the fire looking at the bay and playing monopoly, sharing the lawns with kangaroos, swimming with stingrays, the games and toys for the child, the extras in the kitchen that made preparing a meal so easy... It really was a lovely stay, thank you for sharing your special space. We were all sad to leave and hope to be back before too long ...
Thank you for your review! We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and it would be our pleasure to welcome you again on a future visit!
