Thank you so much for such a wonderful review, especially when the review is from guests who are, or who have worked in the industry. It's always good to know what we get right with the service we provide and also what we could improve, difficult as that is to hear sometimes. I think the recently installed ceiling fans also help with room comfort, especially now that it's hotter, with increased humidity. Thanks again for such a fantastic review, we would love to see you back again in the future. Regards Nikki & Gavin.

Wow Steve, what can I say, that is just the most amazing review. Because we're not a waterfront property, we often get marked down on our location and strangely, value for money, so it means so much to get an outstanding review from guests who can see past that and who appreciate the effort that goes into the service we provide. It was great to meet you both. Safe travels and thanks again. Regards Nikki & Gavin.

Thank you Sita and Joseph for such a glowing report. Yes, Gavin has does his homework and I must say, guests are usually quite surprised to hear that Doubtless Bay is actually the site of a long extinct volcano that blew itself to pieces! We're very happy you enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to you both making a return visit if you're back up this way in the future. Thanks again Nikki & Gavin.
