Indoors, the spacious open plan living, including modern kitchen, allows excellent indoor/outdoor flow to two north facing, yet sheltered decks.

  • The house is spacious and very well set up

    The house is spacious and very well set up. The expansive grounds are private and secure, only a short distance from the beach. Works equally well for couples or families. We loved it and thoroughly recommend it.

  • Sunning location - photos do not do it justice

    Sunning location - photos do not do it justice. Immaculately clean - everything that you could possibly need in a property. The grounds are stunning and the beach is at the end of the driveway. They host weddings there and it is easy to see why people choose it for a venue.
