Panoramic Views from the beach

 This property was exactly what John had said it would be. We loved being there and found having just a little of the home comforts enough to make our stay more enjoyable. I would recommend however, that you take a hefty hammer if you are putting tents up as I think that may be where the "Rock" part came from. It was tough in spots but we still got them up and we did not have to sacrifice space or tents due to inability of putting them up.

 Had a great time, exactly as described with everything we needed. So handy for the water, excellent views over estuary. Great space outside, front and back. Enjoyed the sports complex and the shops were handy. Beautiful area to stay and would love to stay again. John was excellent, helpful and great at keeping in touch.
