  • The batch is perfect for a couple

    The batch is perfect for a couple. Wonderful sun room to have breakfast or home cooked meal. The batch is spotlessly clean. Location is just a few minutes from beaches and fun things to do.

    It was lovely to sit on the private deck surrounded by bush and birds. The studio was spotlessly clean and had everything that you could possibly need for a comfortable stay.
