Double Dutch is a small self catering guest house on 20 acres of farm land in the picturesque valley of Okains Bay. It has 3 rooms and a spacious and comfortable lounge, a sunny verandah and a well equipped kitchen. The walk to the safe and sandy beach along the estuary with its extensive bird life takes about twenty minutes.
A lovely quiet place to unwind, to go for a swim or to walk the surrounding hills or to gather mussels from the rocks by the beach.
We are keen to share our knowledge of the outdoor pleasures that Banks Peninsula offers: walking, kayaking, sailing, swimming with dolphins.
