  • What a fantastic little spot for a quick weekend away

    What a fantastic little spot for a quick weekend away. Immaculate, amazing views and great hosts. I left my cell phone charger behind and with Raewyn's help I received it in the mail just over a week later. Highly recommended and we will most definitely be back.

  • Roomy, well-equipped studio

    Roomy, well-equipped studio. Has plenty of space and everything needed for a comfortable stay. Photos on the website really don't do it justice. Location right on the shore is fantastic! We really enjoyed watching and photographing the variety of birds on shore as the tide went out. It was difficult to pull ourselves away to enjoy the many activities available in the area!
