We hired Seacroft for our wedding over a long weekend in January and it was the most unforgettable, amazing weekend of my life. Sam was the most amazing host to deal with – her communication was impeccable, she had prompt and practical answers to every single question and made the planning process a breeze. Sam has hosted quite a few weddings now and so knows what she’s doing. Seacroft is such a stunning venue with so much soul to it. The views are absolutely breathtaking, the chapel is like no other with the amazing rectangle window offering views of the great ocean road, the hills behind and the ocean, the accomodation is clean, tidy and so unique. We partied into the wee hours of the morning, spent the next day recovering at the gorgeous secluded beach across the road and enjoying the beautiful surrounds of Seacroft- especially admiring the friendly calves in the front paddock. By the end of the weekend Seacroft felt like home and none of us wanted to leave!
Had our wedding here two weeks ago and couldn’t have chosen a better spot or a better host. Sam was an absolute gun and went above and beyond to make sure the place was welcoming and we had all the help we needed on our special weekend. The location itself is spectacular and beautifully kept with little gardens throughout, well thought out renovations and quality facilities. No guest went unimpressed! Between those two things, we don’t need any more convincing to visit many more rimes in future. We cannot thank you enough Sam!
My wife and I were just married at Seacroft, and the experience had been so much more than we both could have ever imagined. We had a lot of international guests and had hoped to show them a beautiful little corner of Australia, and spend as much time together for our wedding as we could. Thanks to Sam and Seacroft, we were able to accomplish that, and have the times of our lives with friends and family. The sunsets we’re stunning, and waking up to the ocean views was an awesome way to start off the day. The beach was great, and only a short walk away. Having the chance to take a quick dip and wash off the nerves before reading my vows was really great. The entire property has a lovely charm about it, we were able to have a great family dinner the night before the wedding in the large dinning room next to the kitchen, play ping pong, Jenga, and just spend great quality time with everyone. I could not recommend Seacroft enough. Sam has been lovely to deal with, and always responded to our inquires quickly. We had absolutely loved our stay, and can’t wait to be back.

Wedding Reviews from Seacroft
Loved taking my girlfriend back to Seacroft, we have booked the venue for our wedding and enjoyed showing her Seacroft. Sam is extremely efficient with all her communication as well as being super friendly and welcoming during our stays. A great city escape, even if it’s just for a night!!Sophie11 Nov 2019
This is the second time we have rented out Sam’s place and we will likely return in the future.
It was the prefect setting for our wedding both due to being an amazingly beautiful spot and also coming ready equipped with everything we needed to out on the weekend.
Memories ourselves and our guests will never forget we’re created which was in part due to how great a place to stay Seacroft is.Liam18 Mar 2019
My husband and I got married at Seacroft and the property was utterly perfect! Sam went above and beyond to ensure everything ran smoothly and we cannot speak highly enough of her and her staff, who we had working for us on the day. The best day of our lives, in the perfect setting, we could not have asked for a better location!
To top off an already amazing weekend, we had the property full both the wedding night and the following night, allowing us to enjoy some quality time with our guests.
Thank you so much! We will definitely be back!Katelyn11 Mar 2019
