The popular bed and breakfast business on 29 Coomooloo Rd in Bald Hills, which includes three lodges for guests, has been successfully run by entrepreneur couple Cheryl and Andy Lush for over a decade.

The couple, who are now in their 70s, are keen to retire and pass on the baton to new owners.

“We bought the place in 2009 and instantly fell in love with it for its unique views,” Mrs Lush said.

The landscape is stunning indeed and the guest lodges with butterfly-shaped roofs have been designed in such a way that there’s no missing the view at any time.

“The Fleurieu Peninsula is a popular tourist destination and we have run a successful business which is also part of the sale along with the property,” she said.

There’s a large commercial kitchen which has catered for many guests, weddings and other functions. The property even has a helicopter landing site close to the guest accommodation.

Apart from the lodges, a separate main building houses the owner’s residence.
