  • Terrific location with both estuary and sea walking distance

    Terrific location with both estuary and sea walking distance. Had amazing time exploring the sand dunes that lie between. The property has so many features and we took advantage of every single one! So no matter the weather there is plenty to do. I have rented many holiday properties and have to say, this is the first that felt like a real home, a very welcoming one at that, with a nice touch of luxury - We were aged from 4 to 88 and everything in between and it suited us all :)

  • This home is fabulous and is set in a unique environment

    This home is fabulous and is set in a unique environment. Our family had such a marvellous time exploring the area,long walks on Pacific Beach and sand dune exploration!There were adventures to be had and then relaxing and unwinding in the fabulous home set in the Olive Grove. My favourite experience was the joyful skylarks that filled the air with ecstatic song. If you are thinking of!! ...and add on an extra night or two!You won't want to leave.
