Idyllic Wilks Bay is a place of simple, intimate luxury. This small, sloping property of manicured lawns hides a three-bedroom villa, a one-bedroom cottage, and four apartments. Each accommodation comes equipped with natural wood and wicker furnishing and a housekeeper who will prepare your meals to order and set up a table wherever you like—on your private patio, under the trees, on the beach, or out on the sunbathing jetty on the hotel’s small private beach. (Frenchmans’ Cove is also just a five-minute walk away.) You get the sense that the hands-on owners, James and Mary Lowe, really care about both the guests and the incredible staff, which translates into a stay that makes Wilks Bay feel like coming home.
