The A-frame house is seriously awesome. The uniqueness of the house is the first of many great things about Kate’s house. Kate herself is lovely and a pleasure to communicate with. Great location with easy to get beaches/shops/etc all easily accessible by car. Thanks for having us Kate :)

If you appreciate simple, stylish, Scandi living, this sweet A-frame house will delight at every turn. Perfect for 3 old friends to cook dinner, drink local wine and chat by the fire. The host’s notes were a great guide - loved the walk to Fingal beach. The native coastal landscaping is stunning - lots of ideas to take back to Sydney! Thanks for a memorable stay - already want to come back.

Spent the weekend at the A-frame for my boyfriends birthday. Apart from admiring the amazing building, furniture and reading all of the inspirational design & architecture books, we had a wonderful time using the beautiful kitchen and dining area. Amazing Global knives made the meals extra delicious! Kate was an exceptional host - looking forward to staying again.

What a wonderful property! We thoroughly enjoyed the architecture, the wonderful native garden and the carefully curated interior; all of which made for a relaxing family getaway. The location of the property made for easy access to lovely beaches, great food and local wineries, all of which were expertly outlined in the extensive house manual. Kate was a wonderful host, welcoming, helpful and understanding. I have already recommended this property to friends.

A really wonderful place for families! Our kids called it "the triangle house" and were thrilled to be sleeping in the point of the roof. Great backyard to roam in, complete with cubby, kids' toys and books a massive plus. Duplo never gets old. Interior was considered - vintage Arabiaware crockery straight from my 70s childhood, Aesop toiletries plus any DVD a film nut could dream of. Cape Schanck itself is an excellent base for families: despite grey weather, we enjoyed coast walks, the Hot Springs and some great food in nearby Flinders. Kate was so helpful and went out of her way to be friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend the Triangle House for an extended long weekend.

Peaceful zen haven. Absolutely loved this special place. Could have stayed a month. AFrame architecture gives beautiful energetic comfort and restful vibe. Aesthetically lovely style. Close to the most amazing raw wild ocean. Would stay again in a heartbeat. Quiet. Woodfire and beautiful surrounds makes for a perfect family retreat. Bath is divine. We enjoyed breakfast at lovely Flinders. Kate quick and warm to communicate with. Recommend for sure.
