    Great location, only a short walk to the beach, no view to speak of but a lovely garden with great privacy. The back lawn was underwater and quite muddy so looks like it needs some drainage work, also the front gate is quite tough to operate, but these are the only two criticisms. Overall this place was fantastic, really relaxing and well appointed with all of the little bits and pieces you need in a house.

  • Great location in easy walking distance

    Great location in easy walking distance. Property had the majority of the amenities you would require. The only thing we found that in winter this property was not too warm. The heater in the bathroom was not working and it was freezing in the there. Perhaps some curtains on the kitchen door hold more of the heat in. The nice man at the hardware store loaned us his heater so the other end of the house could warm up more, in the minus temperatures. Would love this property in summer.

    Great to be able to take our dog with us but the yard was very wet and muddy for her :( Cute cottage, clean and very comfortable.
