The Villa Holiday Home

 We were a family of 3 couples and the layout was perfect. Open plan kitchen /dining and separate lounge. So much space. We loved our stay and would have liked longer. Beautifully restored villa in its era. Of great interest having a joinery background. Well done! Great location and enjoyed the heritage walk during the evening.

 Beautiful location - the house opened up to the outdoors in a fabulous way. The kitchen was well equipped, and there was a great collection of books, movies and CD's. 

Bush bach nestled in reserve, great sea views

 We had such a lovely stay at the Bush Bach. We loved the fact that although we were in town, it felt more like being bush. We were so impressed with how everything was set up. We wouldn't normally watch movies on holiday but it was a nice option when the weather wasn't so great in the evening. Such beautiful views from the deck. Amazing fish and chips just down the road too... We would definitely come again, thanks Roger.
