Modern beach house close to the sea

 Close to the beach, shops and city. Felt very homely but also as if at a 5 star hotel! Would definately recommend to all! 

Modern beach house close to the sea

 Beautiful house, beautiful area, prompt and easy communication. Would definitely recommend staying here! 

Holiday on the Hibiscus Coast

 We had a brilliant long weekend here. House was great for families with kids - very well equipped with playhouse, playground, high chair, small tables and chairs and of course a great swimming pool. Really nice house and backyard and front yard fully fenced and private. We enjoyed fish and chips on the beach at Stanmore Bay and loved Shakespear Regional Park. Army Bay was shaded and so calm for swimming with the kids, and the walk to Waterfall Gully was really easy with preschoolers. Thanks! 

Modern beach house close to the sea

 This is a lovely house, well furnished (with some lovely artworks on the walls) and providing a restful environment. Very close to the beach and handy to shops and other facilities. 

Stunning ocean-front beach house

 This is definitely open plan luxury living by the sea for the whole family. A beautiful beach house with a fabulous view over the bay and great areas for entertaining.The kitchen has everything you would need. A quick stroll to the waterfront and a short drive to the local supermarket. Our family joined us - the 2 grandchildren had a ball. We all had a very relaxing fun time together. So much so that no one wanted to leave! Thank you to the owners who were really fantastic to deal with.
