5 Bdrm Beachfront Family Escape

 Incredible location that is not much more than a few metres from the sandy beach, where we swam, and launched the boat and kayaks. Very enjoyable surroundings, with eye-candy views across the bay from the living room, kitchen and deck. Spacious living area and lots of options for sleeping arrangements making it ideal for more than one family and friends. We will be back again next year!
