 Wonderful paradise found setting. Beautifully maintained and equipped Bach - just like home. And a privilege to be able to use. Owners a delight to deal with. 

absolute beachfront cute modern bach ...  wow

 A gorgeous little house by the sea - the house was used by my groom and his best men for the nights surrounding our wedding. An incredibly tidy house and the views were amazing from the large doors around the back - it is basically on the beach! Could not recommend the property and Ann enough to anyone looking to book :)
