About Ironwood Lodge

The relaxed atmosphere at Ironwood is created through warm hospitality, spacious well equipped accommodation and tranquillity. The unspoilt beaches are a playground for both young and old during the day, at night the sound of the waves is a potion for sleep.

There are plenty of wonderful ways to start the day, one of the best is to wake to birds singing their claim to the indigenous garden. Garden fresh fruit and vegetables find their way to the breakfast and dinner table every day. A guest once remarked, "Ironwood has a Garden of Eden ... except you can pick the fruit and you won't get thrown out". Fresh seafood is our speciality but our home cooking also covers traditional recipes.

Ironwood is a family affair, Mom helps in the kitchen, Dad keeps the garden green and Caron ensures the dιcor is on the right place. Clinton and Warren take turns as head waiter and I would not manage without the cheerful capable help from Doreen, Princess, Primrose and Florence.
