"Perfect retreat" - We were delighted with the Spa Suite at Ocean Blue B & B, it was very comfortable and private. We also enjoyed the beautiful breakfasts served on the terrace. Our host was very amenable to our needs, nothing was too much trouble. All in all, a great experience.

"Lovely & Relaxing" - My partner and I stayed in the Beachcomber Suite for a weekend and we really enjoyed it. House was clean, secluded, had a spa bath and it was a 5 mins walk to the beach! What more could you ask for a weekend away from the city. Ian was so friendly and very accomodating- he was also helpful in regards to the surroundings of the area. Highly recommended! Definitely coming back to check out the Sandpiper Spa Suite ;)

"A wonderful, relaxing stay" - We stayed in the Sandpiper suite for 2 nights while visiting Stanwell Tops for a wedding. Ian's warm and friendly hospitality ensured we had a lovely time, and the rooms were comfortable with plenty of room and privacy. Great location, right near the beach and a few minutes from Tumbling Waters. Will be back!

We spent the weekend at Ian's Bnb as we had a wedding on in Stanwell Park, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Ian was such a great host, making us feel welcome and comfortable from the moment we arrived. He helped us sort out where we were going to have dinner and even shared a bottle of wine and nibbles with us beforehand, after our drive from Sydney. The accommodation was very comfortable, secluded and right near the beach. Breakfast was amazing, it was so good to wake up and have a home cooked breakfast waiting for us, Ian can cook! What a great stay, highly recommended to anyone looking for a quiet and relaxing weekend away by the beach.

My husband and I stayed at Ians beautiful B&B for 2 weeks while visiting from Canada. Stanwell Park is a stunning area and the house was gorgeous. With many hiking trails, cute cafes and a beach with in walking distance it was the perfect spot to holiday.

Thank you for the wonderful weekend We had at the Ocean Blue B&B last weekend. We would like to offer our recommendation to future guests. Our room was clean, spacious and very comfortable and we loved the spa in the tranquil wall garden. The room had an apartment feel and we could of happily stayed tucked away inside all weekend.
We also found the rest of the house extensive and tastefully furnished and the roaring fire and your amazing cooked breakfasts (especially the mushrooms!) made us not want to leave! Eating breakfast looking out to the ocean was another highlight.
Thank you for being a great host, welcoming, hospitable and striking the perfect balance in providing local hospitality without being obtrusive. We felt truly at home and hope to return soon. We would gladly recommend the Ocean Blue B&B to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway or a launch-pad to the south coast. Hope to see you again soon!

Ocean blue B&B was a slice of heaven. We came in the middle of winter and it was so cosy. Ian was a gracious host. The room was perfect, you can see that Ian had put a lot of thought into the design of the room and all the features with a lot of thoughtful touches. Very much enjoyed this stay and can’t wait to return back. Great for both a winter and summer getaway!

If you’re planning a visit to Stanwell Park and looking for somewhere to stay we would highly recommend the Ocean Blue B&B. We loved everything about this B&B that you will find tucked away in a rain forest style garden with beautiful views and easy access to the beach.
The suites are comfortable, spacious and beautifully decorated; the breakfasts are among the best breakfasts we have had the pleasure of eating (and you simply must try Ian’s slow cooked tomatoes and his mushrooms); and best of all is the warmth and hospitality that Ian provides as he welcomes you into his beautiful home.
A stay at Ocean Blue B&B is more like staying with a dear friend rather than just another place to spend the night on your journey.
