    We were cosy and comfortable in the beach house which had everything we required for a most enjoyable stay. The view was wonderful and the sound of the waves lovely at night.

  • We enjoyed a very comfortable long weekend

    We enjoyed a very comfortable long weekend. The location is ideal, close to the village and easy stroll across to the beach. Beautiful view, sounds from the ocean and the kiwi were most pleasant. The Bach has all the necessities that you need and even some you hadn’t thought of. A most enjoyable stay.

  • This is a traditional bach in the most wonderful location

    This is a traditional bach in the most wonderful location. It is extremely well appointed. Every time I looked for something it was there. It is homely and we felt very comfortable and relaxed. Thanks again to Katie for her help with the sheets and towels. We will be back.
