Paradise. Just Paradise.

Furneaux was more than we could have imagined. Staff went beyond in every aspect; from restaurant staff to cleaning staff and in fact every staff member we met. Loved our ‘Cooks Cabin’ with spectacular views ( #5) and great beds and the shower was THE BEST in ages. Would love to return to Furneaux for a week sometime!

Had a very friendly welcoming stay such a amazing lodge.Staff were very helpful and we were very well looked after and our cottage was clean and tidy and had everything we need for our stay. The pick up and drop offs by the water taxi were great and meant we could easily do some great walks around the sounds .The kayaks were also great for having a paddle around the endeavor inlet would definitely love to come back
