 Beautiful location, really nice new house. Great property for kids to play on lawn. Nice walk down to glow worms also.

Spectacular coastal and mountain views

 Well equipped, clean, modern and comfortable - kids loved the added bonus of the trampoline 

Mapua Studio Quality Accommodation

 Loved the fire and the kitchen had everything we needed. Great use of space. 

Beachfront Ligar Bay

 This was our second stay here and second time around was as fantastic as the first. The house is incredibly well stocked - there was hardly anything that we found we needed. Both the close locality to the beach and the outdoor (heated!) shower are awesome.
