    What a wonderful review written by someone who lives life to the full regardless of her limitations. This article serves to inspire not only others who may be in need of wheelchair access accommodation but owners of establishments to address their own often dismally lacking ‘accessible’ rooms or suites.

    Hi Ness,
    I have an older friend who now appears to be confined to a whellchair in a nursing home. i’ll be recommending the family look at your website for reviews of accommodation when they start thinking about giving her some time out.
    Great review thanks,

    I am grateful for Vanessa’s generous comments regarding my access design work & I am also grateful to have had the pleasure of designing both the accessible holiday accommodation & the new private residence I designed for Alex Cochrane & his wife Desiree.
    The success of this project was largely due to the open & generous sharing of views, opinions & requirements at the arliest stages of the project thus creating a ‘team’ approach, which over the past 50+ years of my area of architectural specialisation in ‘access’ projects has been the central point that guides the ‘team’ to a successful outcome, as in this case.

    Dear Vanessa
    I am so pleased to have discovered your insightful Posts and thank you for them. My brother and sister-in-law live in England and my sister-in-law is a high level paraplegic. They are not able to come to Australia frequently but when they do, the family here wants to give them the very best of holidays. We have a small non-accessible two-story weekender in Bewong and last time they came (7 years ago) we booked them into the Anchor Bay Motel at Greenwell Point as a home base for spending time with us on the beautiful south coast. That was a serious downer for them and us. We expect they will come again next May (2015) for another brother’s 80th birthday. Searching the web for suitable accessible accommodation for people with disabilities, I am angry and dismayed that not much has changed in the past 7 years – Google searches lead me to (and pushes) many links to an alternative – “pet-friendly” accommodation. Have you found any really nice quality accommodation akin to Bimbadeen in the St George’s Basin/ Jervis Bay area that provides truly accessible accommodation.
    Many thanks
