Sea Greene Beach Cottage

 Lovely bach with pretty much everything you need for a weekend away in a great part of the country. 

Dingle Beach House Kaka Point

 We liked the property as it was close to the beach and the amenities. It was very clean and tidy and had everything that we needed. The new shower was good and the heat pump great.
