Amazing sea views, contemporary architectural home

 This is a property with some wow factor, in an incredibly quiet location with stunning views. A real pleasure to stay here, and the ideal location for some R&R. Property owner was a friendly fella to deal with too.

Bach251 absolute beachfront

 There was plenty of outdoor and indoor living space - great for an extended family. And being right by the beach was brilliant. We enjoyed energetic walks along the beach as well as sitting quietly and watching the sunset. A perfect place for chilling out.

Stunning Views, All day Sun

 Great location, handy to town. A good climb to burn off the icecreams. Only negative was that almost all the ocupants stubbed their toes on the top of the stairs at some point due to the piece of wood sticking out.
