 Awesome bach, we loved our stay here. Perfect setup, and great for families with small children. Thanks for a great holiday. 

Relaxing bach close to all you require....

 We had a fantastic stay only not long enough. Casa Tranquilo has everything you need & in a great location close to town & an easy walk to the beach & wharf. The deck provided many outside hours for meals & social activities.The little ones had a great time too the fully fenced section ensured they were safe. Thanks heaps we would love to come back again!
