Ultimate Beach Front

 We stay at this bach 2 or 3 times a year. We absolutely love everything about this place. Cant wait to go up there again in a few months hopefully :) 

Ultimate Beach Front

 Fantastic spot we really enjoyed our second stay at this bach and were stoked to have great waves breaking right in front :) 

Ultimate Beach Front

 Most idyllic postition, our favourite place so far. Perfect place for family and friends with loads of room and beds. Love how it is a real beach house and so comfortable. We will be back. 

Ultimate Beach Front

 Five adults and two children had the most amazing time. The bach was so welcoming and WOW! what a position. The doors opening right out onto a massive deck making the most amazing atmosphere. Spacious- absolutely! The kitchen had EVERYTHING you might need and the games room provided lots of fun. The sound of the waves and the ever changing water was great. Having such a beautiful beach to ourselves most of the time was an added bonus as was the stunning weather we had. Highly recommend :) 

Ultimate Beach Front

 Amazing location almost on top of the sand dunes. Unfortunately the weather wasn't so good for our stay but the comfy living area with the view of the ocean combined with a table tennis table downstairs made it a great place to stay. Would love to stay here again. 

Ultimate Beach Front

 Great location and view! The bach is tidy and well equipped and we really enjoyed our stay :)
