Dear Sue and Werner,

The Bronzewing cottages is a treasure!  One would like to keep it a secret so it’s available when we want to return.  They are a perfect base for exploring KI and set in a friendly, peaceful hamlet. The cottages are perfect for people who want to relax in a cosy, comfortable accommodation.  Enjoy the magnificent 180 degree sea view and the constant changes in colour, waves and tides.  Catch a fish at the pier.  Take long walks or search for shells at the beach. Indulge in KI cheese and beef.  This place is good for the soul and stimulates ones creativty.

Could life be better?

Dear Sue & Wemer,
You have done a GREAT job with Bronzewing cottages!
Cottage #2 was clean, bright, comfortable & was well equipped.  We absolutely love the porch & we ate almost all our meals out there.  To me, that is heaven!  I appreciate the fact that you made it a covered porch & protected on the sides from the wind, without compromising the view.
Another thing I really appreciated, was that you only put 3 cottages on that block.  Although aware that the others were occupied, each cottage is far enough away from each other that we were still private & not able to hear the others.  You have also done a fabulous job with your garden beds.  Beautiful.
Thankyou for providing a clothes rack!  This is something I think every holiday home should have!

The cottages are perfect for an escape on King Island. The cottage was very very clean, had everything you need and a truly amazing view. I loved it and already plan to return!

Thank you very much for this wonderful holiday, the cottage was just what I had hoped for.
Close to the beach, for walking and or just to sit at the table and watch the sea.  

This side of KI is very lovely and peaceful.  I felt I had the beach to myself.  The people we met were lovely & friendly.
Hope to be back very soon.  So thank you again.

Dear Werner & Sue,

Had a wonderful stay at Naracoopa in Bronzewing Cottages.  A real home away from home in an idyllic setting.
You’ve done a fantastic job preparing these for KI visitors.

Hi Sue,

I have been meaning to email you since we have been home, to let you know what an absolutely fantastic time we had on King Island - & for the most part, the accommodation!!!  We loved the cottage, and it was even better that it was at Naracoopa - would not have had that view anywhere else; not to mention the 2 x day walk along the beach!!!  It met our needs perfectly - home away from home!   (Really appreciated too, the goodies in the fridge on arrival)   
We have been telling everyone about our trip, how great the Island is and also the accommodation.
We will be back!!
Thank you again.

We have just returned from KI and really enjoyed our time there. Loved the cottage it was just the way I like it. Clean, light, awesome position and view.... Had everything you needed without having all sorts of bits around, minimalist works for me every time.

We returned last night from a delightful holiday on King Island. We were thrilled with the location of your cottages - so convenient, and so close to the sea. Definitely preferred the peace of Naracoopa, compared to Currie. We’re impressed with the design (liked the touches of red - my favourite colour) and excellent facilities of our cottage - the double glazing (perfect protection from heat and cold), kitchen/living room, bathrooms, bedrooms (good mattress on our double bed), and mobile access (and hence WiFi access, using my mobile hot spot). LOVED the splendid isolation of the beaches on King Island, and were most interested (and saddened) to read about all the shipwrecks. Our favourite walks/visits were to Lovers Lane (by coast and ridge-tops), Sea Elephant River, Cowpers Point, Blow Hole, Seal Rocks and Copperhead Trail, Surprise Bay, Boathouse Café, Badger Box, Museum (and Lighthouse lens) and King Island Dairy. Couldnt see ANY birds at Pennys Lagoon or Lake Martha Lavinia (however, Sea Elephant and Surprise Bay made up for that), and the shores of both lakes were too overgrown to walk around. Were most surprised to see that the Cape Wickham area was being developed as a golf course. So - as you can see - we had a most interesting, relaxing time on this beautiful island. Im thrilled you suggested that we stay in Bronzewing Cottages.

What a wonderful holiday.... We sat on the deck and enjoyed the ocean view, we read, we listened to podcasts we have been too busy to listen to, we watched the occasional car go past and waved because they waved at us. We left totally rested and relaxed with our batteries recharged. We will be back.....

My wife and me enjoyed our getaway to King Island . It was peaceful and wonderful enjoying the sea view from our cottage after a day exploring the many hidden secrets of King Island . I really enjoyed my long runs around the island and the great fishing from the pier just around the corner from our cottage. The cottage provided all we needed and more. Everything was great and we have no hesitation in recommending Bronzewing cottages to our friends and family. Thank you for a wonderful stay on the island... we will be back for sure...
