The Cliff House

The sensuous curves of the Cliff House, perched on the cliff overlooking beautiful Snelling’s Beach, inspires complete surrender to relaxation for the perfect romantic get away. The circular tower bedroom has a panoramic window looking out to southern sea, and the cushioned sunken pit with open fire is the ultimate in repose. Luxuriate yourself in your outdoor cliff-edge Jacuzzi, drinking in breathtaking views of Snelling’s Beach, a local pod of Dolphins or the southern stars above.

NB: Private helicopter landing area nearby, perfect wedding venue, last minute getaways.
