  • So close to town centre

    So close to town centre. A gorgeous looking place with the river and ducks providing a great back drop. Wifi didn't work well which was frustrating. Had everything else though.

  • We had such a great 2 weeks at Serenity Cottage

    We had such a great 2 weeks at Serenity Cottage. There was a well equipped kitchen. lots of bedding., a movie a night, washer, the use of the kayaks. It's a short walk to the beach and was super quiet for sleeping. Shelley and Steve were excellent to deal with. Thanks from Deb & Randy Canada

  • Very cute and comfortable little cottage! Everything was clean and had everything...

    Very cute and comfortable little cottage! Everything was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. Would highly recommend to our friends and family in the future :)

  • Great place to stay

    Great place to stay. Very well equipt. Fantastic setting Only when it rained heavily did it dent our impression as the site is prone to flooding, especially when heavy rain coincides with high tide. Could do with more trees planted on the property and surrounding area, and consideration to a stop bank with native plantings also would enhance the environment and possibly help regards flooding
