The perfect place to sit back and relax, taking in the panoramic views. A newly built bach with summer fun in mind, Large sliders open out onto a full length covered verandah and sundeck to take advantage of shade and sun. The house faces north so the sun can be enjoyed all year round.

The energetic can take a short walk along the clifftop to a couple of great swimming spots or try snorkelling or cast a line.Watch the graceful gannets gliding effortlessly on the breeze suddenly diving from a great height on to hapless prey beneath the waves with a huge splash. Sometimes large schools of fish churn the water into foam with flocks of seabirds diving to add to the spectacle with occasional visits from dolphins and even Orca for the lucky observer.

    This is a fantastic property! The location, the views, activities to do close by. Very much a home away from home, where you're guaranteed to find in the drawers and cupboards the right things you need. It's a very uncluttered space, but still feels homely. As a traveller with two young children, I found it very low-maintenance, and was able to relax and enjoy our stay knowing the children were safe, and not able to break things! I can't say enough how much we enjoyed our stay here.
