Amazing sea views, contemporary architectural home

 This property was the perfect location to end our holidays. We loved the open plan which opened out onto the huge deck, some great art pieces and furniture which gives the house a very cool vibe. A great location if you're looking to get away from the city and escape to a secluded spot with nothing but land and seas around you. Bonus is that it's only over an hours drive to get to. Looking forward to coming back!
