"Thank you so much for the Freedom and the beauty of this Estate.

You are very special, I’m leaving rested, happy + inspired.

Love + Art"

- Lady Gaga

 

"You just run out of superlatives here. The privacy is unmatched, anywhere we've stayed. A whole headland and two beaches to yourself. The property is magnificently designed, built and positioned. The master-suite, with uninterrupted views over the ocean, out to the islands, and an auto-sliding roof for star-gazing, just can't be beaten. The indoor pool was excellent for a late swim once the sun had gone down, and a glass of red watching the sunset with kangaroos for company... well, enough said. Spoil yourself!"

"We've been holidaying at Silver Sands Resort for many years and have just enjoyed another relaxing week. The outdoor pool is stunning and sparkling. It looks sensational following the refurbishment and new edge tiling that was done last year and the recent addition of 'grass' around the edges. The rooms continue to be upgraded and the facilities and gardens are well maintained."

- Graham

 

"We always have a great time here. It's a perfect summer getaway. Awesome large pool which is spacious, 3 outdoor spas. Indoor pool and spa and the beach just a 5 min walk away. Great size apartment with all kitchen facilities. Excellent family vacation and on budget."
