"This was our dream cottage for 3 days in winter. Thank you Jayne for your warm welcome and your delightful house by the sea. We saw penguins, sea-lions, walked a lot and became KI lovers."

~ Brenton & Kyoto, Sydney NSW

"Thank you very much for letting us enjoy your beautiful cottage. It was a highlight on our Australian trip. We will never forget our breakfast on the front terrace when the dolphins came so near. We could hear penguins sing to each other at night and we even saw a wallaby on the front lawn last night! Everything was just perfect."

~ Ferdinand & Jacqueline Luxembourg
