 This house was just great....grand location and very quiet.It was furnished with love and detail...as though it was one´s own home.To begin with we thought we wouldn´t survive without TV. or internet....but we had a great time without both.The owners had set up a hunt which we managed to complete....good fun!

 Really nice property with heaps of space both indoors and out. Morning sun on the back porch is fantastic, as is the proximity to the beach. The only downside was we had about 50 boyracers scream past at 1am, but one cannot predict the movements of boyracers and their super loud cars.
