Here's a few excerpts from our 30 year old Visitors Book.  

Looking forward to reading your entry after your stay!

We thoroughly enjoyed our couple of months at Scarlet’s exploring everything Bermagui has to offer. We joined the golf club, made lots of friends and dined in every restaurant and loved every meal.

We used this time to decide if the South Coast is where we’d like to live and it’s a definite “yes!”

Thanks Dianne for your thoughtful presentation of Scarlet’s By the Sea and for the lovely surprises on our arrival. We’re looking forward to being neighbours one day.

Thank you so much for providing such a lovely house for our stay in beautiful Bermagui, our first time here and we hope it won't be our last. Visited many sights, Marie's chair/pools, Bermi Hotel, fished on the wharf with success. The kids, Marty and I love it here and thank you for sharing a piece of your family history.

Dear Dianne,

It's so lovely to sit here and admire the beauty of Bermi, it's so relaxing. Thank you so much for letting us stay here. We enjoyed it very much. Love always Ellen and Geoff. 

Hi Dianne,

Had 3 glorious days, I forgot how beautiful Bermi is. Out dalmation, Nakeisha commonly known as "Spotty Girl" had a great time too. She thanks you as well. It has been awesome that we have had a truly pet friendly holiday at your place. Thanks again Dianne.
Love Jimmy, Ilona and Nakeisha

Dear Dianne and family,

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Being our 3rd holdiay in Bermi, it was just like coming home as we entered the township to the welcoming ring of the bell-birds.
A tough year for our family was eased by spending a wonderful 10 days together by the beach on Horseshoe Bay and enjoying the beautiful mountainbike trails beyond.
Even having stitches underfoot and being unable to venture out into the forest for my runs didn't spoil the overwhelming joy I feel as the “aura” of Bermi fills my soul.
The boys loved the gentle surf and Luke rode a few bigger waves at Camel Rock.  Seemed to be quite a lot more folks on the beach beach this year – hope that doesn't mean the 'secret' is out!
Thanks again!

Leanne, Jorn, Luke and Jake

4 days of divine weather, and warming fires at night.  Love sleeping on the verandah and seeing the moon, stars and the lights around the boat harbour.  Some great walks. 
Thanks Dianne

Thanks Dianne for allowing myself and my family to stay in your lovely house.  We all had a fun, relaxing time and wish it  was for longer.  We sat on your Mum's chair down at the Blue Pool as well.  Many thanks again.

Thanks Dianne
We have thoroughly enjoyed our week in beautiful Bermi.  The weather has been great and James has enjoyed the surf at Camel Rock.  We enjoyed relaxing in the sun with our books and swimming.  Had some lovely evening walks and looking at the great sunsets from the verandah of your fabulous home!!
Again thanks soooo much

Michael, Michelle, and James Harrison

P.S.   Also was lovely having a drink at the Horse and Camel watching the boats come in!!

A magic place!
Shimmering ocean, parrot fish.  Blues of every shade, sad to go home.

Relaxing and homely.

Our second and longest stay at your beautiful home – perfect weather – beach everyday.   Loved how Ken takes his clubs and walks to golf.
I enjoyed my coffee and cakes at Creame Patiseire – I love that shop – everything is delicious – everyone friendly.
We love the homemade gelato at the icecream shop – yum!
The boys surfed and fished and we walked to everything together.
We shall return.

Well, what can be said that hasn't been said before in this newsy visitors book.  We love Bermi – its cafes and beaches are gorgeous.  We had a great week.  Thanks again for sharing your homely home with our family.
