"The_Garden_Shed" was formally a boat shed that sat around storing furniture, odd bits and pieces for people including a rare ford escort panel van. After much conversation with family and friends who favored a small sports stadium, we decided on providing quality accommodation for couples and small families at an affordable price.

The "boat shed" was moved two meters to it's current location in the garden, yet the gardens have been reduced to provide more outdoor space for guest.

The_Garden_Shed is now a cozy two bedroom cottage of 57m2 that internally has all the conveniences you'd expect in modern apartment style living. The kitchen has all (or most) of everything you need including a fridge/freezer and dishwasher. The property is fully stocked for short stays (Tea, coffee, laundry liquid etc) or to get you off the ground should you be staying for a while. A small dining table sits in the middle between the kitchen and the lounge.

The lounge has a two seater couch and two lazyboy recliners (no fighting now) A 32 inch TV, a DVD player (with some video's) and stereo with ipod connectivity. There is also free wifi with secured encryption, so you'll receive your personal access code via text on move in day

The main bedroom has a comfortable queen bed with side cabinets and lamps. The second bedroom has two king singles with a cabinet and lamp between them. Both bedrooms have wardrobes, with storage available to keep the suitcases out of the way

Externally there is an upper deck with outdoor furniture and BBQ and the lower lawn area with trampoline for you too enjoy.

    If only all garden sheds were as delightful as this place! The property is very well equipped, tastefully decorated, clean and incredibly comfortable. The location is awesome; just a short walk to great amenities, golf course and the sea front. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone thinking of staying in this wonderful area.

  • Walking distance to beach town and shopping centres

    Walking distance to beach town and shopping centres. Very well equipped kitchen. Fresh Flowers and fruit on arrival. High quality linens. Fresh packages of tea and coffee. Definitely more than a garden shed.

    Apart from a comfortable bed and the place being clean, I always look for somewhere that lets us eat our meals outside. Despite our visiting at the end of summer, we loved sitting out in the sheltered, private deck in the sun. This place is well above expectations. It is immaculate, beautifully appointed and luxurious-feeling. Book it if you can.

  • The bach was immaculate

    The bach was immaculate... more like a fancy apartment that was comfortable, bright, super clean and well equipped. It has a lovely big deck and is about a 5-10 minute walk to the beach. Robert and Amanda made us feel like family!

    We really enjoyed having you stay with us, you have a wonderful family, and we thoroughly loved our time together over a farewell meal. Looking forward to coming to Canada in the future and will definitely take up your invitation to come visit. All the very best to you all :)
