Samsara sleeps a maximum of 4 adults & 2 children.
Prices are based on a maximum of 4 guests.

Note that Homeaway charge the guest a booking fee on top of these prices between 3% & 12% depending on the length of stay.
There is a 5 night minimum stay for the Christmas/ New Year & Easter period.
The house is unfenced so merges into the beauty of the park with impressive trees, granite boulders & a seasonal creek.
Relax on the deck & watch the Island's wildlife.
In the wet season the creek runs past the house so you have your own private spa with a rock pool 40 metres upstream.
Due to recent heavy rain the creek is running across the driveway so February dates have been blocked as access cannot be assured.
The Rainbow Lorikeets & Kookaburra's visit the deck every day & Koala's inhabit the trees at the rear of the house.
As evening approaches, the Possums, Curlews & Wallabies emerge.
Alma Bay (the island's best swimming beach) is only a 12 minute walk & has a shady lawn area & play park for children.
