Omaha River Retreat - Entertainers Paradise

 Great spot, we enjoyed out stay. 

Beach Front Bonaccord Harbour Home

 Had an awesome weekend - thank you so much! 

Water's Edge

 We loved the location. It felt as though we were the only people in the Bay, so quiet and peaceful. There was plenty of room for the children to play, and having the dinghy and kayaks was an added bonus. When the tide was out nearby Martins Bay is an excellent safe beach, and there are walks for those who like to take some exercise. The house itself is excellent for family get togethers, but we did feel the Cleaner could have been a bit more thorough. 

Omaha Ocean Facing Beachfront House

 Perfect location, best in Omaha - wonderful views and fantastic house for peace and quiet. Lots of space for quiet getaways if you are with a group. 

Omaha Sands- Just the tonic you need!

 Lovely, spacious and tidy house. Had everything we needed! Beautiful view and surroundings. Very close to beach. Would certainly return! 

Private retreat, stunning views and sea access

 Had an amazing time - the house was stunning and the perfect place to spend our NY break. Very well equipped, felt like a home to us and we honestly haven't stopped talking about it. Very private, lovely neighbours, gorgeous gardens, and loads of entertainment for both kids &adults. Pizza oven, table tennis and spa were a huge hit. Much better in person than what can be conveyed in pictures. Little surprises around every corner. Phil &Marion thought of everything!Highly recommend
