Estuary edge in private estate.

 The property had everything we needed for a short stay. The location was very good overlooking the estuary with a spacious deck with comfy outdoor furniture. The bike was handy for my 11 year old also.

 The location is perfect for a stroll to town, the parks and the beach. The area is quiet and the view is spectacular. The bach itself has everything you would need for a home away from home experience. Would highly recommend.
