Manaia View Bach - One Tree Point Bach

 Location. Comfort. Everything you needed was there. Sky TV would have been a nice bonus though. 

Water's Edge

 We loved the location. It felt as though we were the only people in the Bay, so quiet and peaceful. There was plenty of room for the children to play, and having the dinghy and kayaks was an added bonus. When the tide was out nearby Martins Bay is an excellent safe beach, and there are walks for those who like to take some exercise. The house itself is excellent for family get togethers, but we did feel the Cleaner could have been a bit more thorough.
