'There's no instant booking system!' - Thats deliberate.
It means we can make sure that the experience is personal from the get go and give you advice on making sure your holiday on the Barrier is as great as it should be.
Tryphena House might not even be quite what you are looking for, so we may even be able to make recommendations for other places to stay on the island that suit your needs.
Pete and I will get back to you as soon as we can. We'll be honest, Pete loves fishing more than emailing, so sometimes this can take up to 2 days especially in the busier summer months.

About 1km after that the road heads away from the ocean. Theres a white bridge on your left, go over it. You'll spot our chickens and banana plants. We are the house with the big red roof on the water. Park up in our carpark or head to the waterfront. Pete or I will be around to greet you.
