St Josephs Guest House The Building

The Building

St Joseph’s Guest House is the passion of Steve Kavanagh, your host, who saw the potential of the ruined remains of a Catholic Church built in the 1800’s.

The building has been painstakingly restored and turned into a stunning guest house. It comprises four king bedrooms complete with air conditioning and ensuite bathrooms. A fifth bedroom has a separate bathroom. Free to Air digital TV is provided to every bedroom as well as the entertainment area. The bedrooms, plus the kitchen, laundry and dining areas offer all you need for a comfortable stay away from home.  There is also an indoor entertainment area for movies, music and dancing and a large outdoor deck for the afternoon drinks and barbeque. A quiet upstairs retreat has a unique featured glass floor section to keep an eye on the festivities below.
