The Strand Beachfront and the Somerset Mall are only a few minutes’ drive away for all your shopping requirements, as are recreational activities such as hiking trails. A supermarket, hair salon, dry cleaner, and restaurant are within an even closer proximity.

Adequate on-site parking is available within the premises behind electronic gates, and a sparkling and refreshing pool is also available to our guests who would prefer to cool-off rather than go sight-seeing.

                                      Quick one night stay over. Great facilities, clean and spacious units and rooms, lush gardens to enjoy nature and Garry the host was great all-round with natural hospitality humor to make you feel at home. Will visit again. Thanks Garry!

                                      We have stayed at Gary's Mooring House quite a few times over the years and it still remains one of the most tranquil and best accommodation establishments I have had the pleasure of dealing with on a regular basis. Thank you Gary! Best regards,Ann
