    Great location - a quick walk to the beach, quiet street, lovely house with great spaces inside and out. Fully fenced section with good shade. Really appreciated being able to bring our dogs along who loved their beach walks. Highly recommend.

  • We were 6 females for a girls weekend

    We were 6 females for a girls weekend. The place was perfect and bigger than expected from photos. Well cared for and well appointed. The large table and umbrella on the deck was perfect for meals and drinks and the lovely indoor table perfect for games etc. Fabulous beach short stroll away. Highly recommended for groups or families as small secure section.
