Your hosts Brian and Nicole Barnes are passionate about people and about hospitality. The building and developing of Gull on the Bay Boutique Guest House has been a 12 year project for Brian and he is delighted to share his beautiful home on the beachfront with future Guests. Brian left his corporate career after a very successful 23 year career to pursue his dream of owning and running an up market and Boutique Guest house. Brian pursued studies in Accounting and Engineering but from a young age he had a love for hospitality and a yearning to enter the Hospitality Industry and in 2016 an opportunity arose for Brian to finally move into hospitality full time. Both Brian and Nicole love road running and are members of the local West Coast Running Club and other hobbies include playing in an orchestra, reading and spending quality camp outs and fun time with their twin daughters.
The neighbourhood in which Gull on the Bay is situated is peaceful and quiet and is a wonderful place to visit for a short stay or extended holiday.

A truly wonderful place!
