Relaxing Home Away From Home

 Great house. Wonderful views. A short stroll to the beach. The house was comfortable, clean and very well resourced for a group of eight adults. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others. 

Relaxing Home Away From Home

 We found the property to be very inviting, comfortable beds, beautiful views overlooking the beach, a quiet neighbourhood and had all the amenities we needed. The downstairs area worked out well for our boys and their friends. A super comfy place to kick back and relax for the weekend. Thanx so much!

VIEWS, VIEWS, VIEWS - ONEMANA STUNNER

 Fantastic location, well set up, but needed a second shelf in the oven as the house accommodates 8 people, however the oven is not set up for this. Overall it was a great stay and would definitely stay again if the issues have been resloved. 

Family bach with ocean views

 Great family bach - have stayed there twice now. Very close to shop, cafe, beach and spa. Ocean views too. Very comfortable and our kids love it there with all the toys, books and rooms to claim :)
