Sea, River and Bush Views

 We loved the stunning views from the living area. Also a lovely and quiet location, with a short drive from town. Highly recommend. 

Verde - Comfortable Home Close to Beach

 We enjoyed the well organised kitchen, the good quality linen on the beds, and little extras such as clothes washing powder, toilet paper, that was already there. The stairs are a bit creaky in the night for loo visits, but that added to,the fun! We enjoyed listening to the bird life and being surrounded by bush and trees.
