Visited the hot springs for the day and decided to book somewhere close by for the night. Had a fantastic stay in this cosy cottage. Gail was super easy to communicate with and provided great recommendations for dinner. Highly recommend.
The host was friendly and replied to our text messages fast and with clarity. She also dropped by as soon as we got there and left us some new light bulbs. the house was clean and cosy.
Thanks Gail and Brendan! We loved your place. Was perfect for a quick night away. Lots of space and very quiet.
Gail and Brendan are excellent hosts! My wife and I felt so welcomed from the moment we arrived that we almost forgot we had never met Gail and Brendan before!! The accommodation was perfect for our last minute trip to the Peninsula. Quiet, short walk to the beach, close enough to shops and the house is very warm and cosy in winter. Would highly recommend
We had a great stay at Gail and Brendan's place. Perfect location, homely, well equipped and clean. We were staying with family visiting from the UK and it was just perfect for what we needed. We only stayed one night and would have loved to stay longer! We had a lovely walk down to St Andrew's beach which was only a few minutes walk away. Great communication from Gail and Brendan and there to meet us when we arrived. Would highly recommend!
The cottage was great, in a really nice location and short walk to the beach. We were a group of 3 friends that stayed and it was a perfect place to catch up! We toured the area, stopped and got some wine and local produce and enjoyed that in the comfortable loungeroom. The place was nice and bright and very clean. A beautiful big grassy front and back yards. Be nice to stay again in summer!
Gail was great - she was friendly and gave us all the information we needed.
Great hosts. Very clean, light, and comfortable accomodation a short walk to a beautiful beach. The home had everything we needed, well equiped kitchen, comfortable beds, a visitors book with lots of suggestions for places to eat, places to visit etc.
Would absolutely recommend Ocean Swells to anyone wanting to take a break at St Andrews Beach. Thanks Gail and Brendan.
