Vention House charmed all that stayed there. A perfect location to get away from it all and find stunning views through almost every window. Our boys loved it, explored it, danced around it and then hit the beach, a beach so easy to hit that you could find yourself on it with out really meaning to...location one! As the days went by we all found ourselves succumbing to the slower rhythms of life at Vention House and felt all the better for it. Even my 85 year old mother, not so mobile these days, made a trip down to the Beach house Cafe and back without complaint of body or word. The facilities were more than adequate for our small group and Matilda the house keeper was easy to contact for help if we had any problems. Ocean Cottages in general were very helpful from the first day we went to book and we'd definitely use them again. I hope Vention House will keep its status as a holiday home, as we'd almost certainly return to such a great spot.

What a week we have had!

My family treated me to a week at Vention House to celebrate my 60th birthday - and what a week we have had! We couldn't have asked for better weather, sun everyday, enough surf, no wind, just perfect. The house and location - we have run out of words to express ourselves of the beauty of the location, the lovely accommodation and facilities and how we have been able to have a fabulous family party - thank you! I feel so spoilt. We will return!
