  • Fantastic location right on the water

    Fantastic location right on the water. You can spend hours on a sunny day dipping your toes in the water just watching the fish swim by or launch the boat/kayaks from the backyard to paddle along the estuary. The one negative: the house creaks at night as it cools down and it's really loud. Light sleepers beware!

    Unfortunately due to a family bereavement we were not able to join our family on this trip. It is, therefore difficult for us to comment on the property. However, having spoken to them, they enjoyed there stay.

    Great location with the water right off the front of the property - lots to do for the kids. Sheltered from the wind too.
