Beautiful Holiday Home

 Five stars doesn't really do this place justice, because it's fantastic. Beautifully designed, luxurious, comfortable, close to the beach, great outdoor areas, and lovely owners to deal with. The perfect getaway - especially for a gaggle of gals who just wanted to put their feet up, have a wine or three, and enjoy a few rays of sun on the balcony. Perfect - thank you. 

Beautiful Holiday Home

 Fantastic house and location. 

Seaviews from the deck

 Lovely place to stay, very roomy and handy to the beach, the shops and the skate park, kids loved it and so did we all.
