This modern studio apartment faces north and captures the rising sun and early morning warmth. A vast southern ocean and coastal promontories jut into the sea as far as the eye can see. Perched above the rocky outcrop of Point Sturt and standing alone at ocean side, the deck-house is bathed in the sound of the sea. The front deck is a viewing platform to watch surfers, fishermen, shipping, dolphins, and whales (Oct/Nov)

To the south is natural bush bringing koalas, wallabies, echidna, rosellas, parrots, and kookaburras, to your doorstep.

The style is contemporary and features a high-pitched ceiling walled by glass on three sides to maximize the view and natural light. The decor mirrors the aquas of the ocean 30 metres below.

You can swim, bushwalk, fish or sight see or you may treat yourself…….. and simply sleep, dream and relax at the deck house with its spellbinding ocean view.

What Our Guests Say

Tracey & Vin
Watched the most perfect sunrise this morning and realised it’s over too quickly. We have gone from 2 nights to 3 nights but have decided next time to stay a week. It is so peaceful and calming here and has been our favourite spot down the Gt Ocean Rd. Well done Corinne & Peter for getting it “just right”!

Rob & Rita
What can we say about this magical place, this is our eighth stay here. This time too short in comparison to our two week stay in January. We look forward to returning in January as usual. We had a wonderful relaxing break. Till January!

Peter & Jo
Awesome views, wonderful place to get away from ‘real life’ relaxing, invigorating, leaves you wanting for nothing. Thank you so much for providing this piece of heaven for us to share. We will be back.

Richard & Christie
We had a special time as our anniversary gift to each other. Pomm & oysters on the deck and a walk to the pub for dinner was wonderful. This is our second visit and I am sure we will be back.
