  • This is a very comfortable, well equipped bach, in a stunning location

    This is a very comfortable, well equipped bach, in a stunning location. We were here in mid-winter, so really appreciated the fireplace and good wood supply. We booked for 2 nights, and didn't want to leave. We will definitely stay longer next time.

    The location of this house is amazing! We enjoyed watching the dolphins every morning and evening. The beach is beautiful and right out the back door. The house has a nice clean kitchen fully stocked, cozy fireplace and stocked with board games. I gave this house 4 stars because their seemed to he a significant spider problem and the carpets/bathrooms had a mildew smell. I suppose its hard to have carpet next to the beach. If those problems weren't there this place would be perfect!

    Location, location, location! Right on beautiful Porpoise Bay beach where you can walk for miles on the beach and barely meet a soul, watch Hector's dolphin cavorting in the waves, swim, surf or see Yellow Eyed Penguins and the petrified beach at Curio Bay next door. House is comfy and a bit beach rustic, kitchen moderately stocked and limited cafe's in the area so good idea to bring food. No Internet or TV, so be prepared to disconnect and enjoy the vast beauty of nature that surrounds you.
