Retro Bach - Private, with Harbour Views

 Great location. It felt like how a bach of my childhood was. Loved the record collection and we spent an enjoyable wet afternoon trying to recall the songs of our teenage years. Plenty of room for the 8 adults that stayed on the first night. 

Retro Bach - Private, with Harbour Views

 Gorgeous outlook - I could sit all day in the sundrenched lounge watching the weather and the harbour. Easy walk to town and very close to wharf (gourmet fish & chips yum!). House is decked out with gorgeous retro furniture and crockery - is basic but pleasant. Shower is endlessly hot with good pressure. kitchen capable of cooking a roast meal for 6 no worries. Only negative was it needs a spring clean & smelled a bit musty. overall very pleasant - Great for a group.
