    The special thing about this property is the stream running through it. This was hours of fun for our children and more popular than the nearby beaches.

    The house is perfectly situated to take in nature yet not too far from shops. We absolutely loved sitting on the deck in the mornings listening to the little waterfall in the creek and watching the birds in the native bushes that line the property. The kids enjoyed having the room detached from the house making them feel like it was a bit more special, camp like. We loved taking walks down to the beach and finding hundreds of crabs. Thank you so much, will definitely like to return.

    Lovely place to stay. Only downside is the low water pressure, but that is minor.
