Accommodation at Whale Bay

 We had the best holiday at Tris and Pete's holiday home. The surf is literally across the road, the gardens are beautiful and the house is set back from the road making the place feel like a little private tropical oasis. Highly recommend their place if your are looking to score some beaut waves and have a stress free relaxing break!
