Sit back, relax have a cold beer or wine from the beer fridge and enjoy the views.

Don't worry about the kids - they'll be fine in this large fully fenced property, jumping on the safe trampoline, playing in the sandpit or kicking a ball around in the front yard. Your dog will be loving it too in the kennel with its auto-filling drinking bowl.

With 7 bedrooms - 5 double beds and 6 singles (mainly in bunks) + 2 portacots, this unique house is perfect for large groups, or multiple families. The house is set up as 2 stand-alone houses which are joined at each end - one with sound barrier double doors between the two lounges. Open them up to give flow through to one large room, or close them off to keep the noise down or gain a bit of privacy. Two kitchens, toilets, bathrooms, lounges, wet area shower etc means you can have a bit of space to yourself, while still enjoying the company of your mates and their kids.

This property is set up to make holidays easy. Especially with lots of kids. One of the lounges is set up with full sound-resistant insulation to virtually sound-proof off the area. The adults can stay up late watching the rugby, and the kids can be up at the crack of dawn - without either disturbing the quiet sleeping areas throughout the rest of the house. There is plenty of room if the weather is not good.

Unlimited use lightning fast VDSL broadband wifi means you or the kids can go crazy on youtube or minecraft or whatever necessary if it happens to rain. BYO sky box - we've got a dish installed ready to go so you can watch the rugby or cricket on the 50" plasma.

A fisherman's dream setup, there's plenty of parking for the boat, washdown facilities handy, a large floodlit filleting table with barrels for transporting fish guts and a large wood-fired hot/cold fish smoker with wood supplied.

    Brilliant garden for kids which lets the adults relax. Fully equipped house and kitchen with everything you will need. Close to beach, shops, cafes and takeaways. It’s great for multiple families as there is plenty of space to spread out. Loved it!!

  • We had three generations staying here for a birthday weekend and this...

    We had three generations staying here for a birthday weekend and this place was awesome, So well kitted out with everything we needed, tons of space for everyone, comfortable beds, and gorgeous views too. The house is quite soundproof and quiet, and warm and toasty too. Lovely big deck to take in those views, and nice and secure section for younger kids. Easy walk to shops and to the new playground, and great little path to the beach runs down next to the property. We had an amazing time and would definitely book again.

  • We had a great stay here

    We had a great stay here. The place is well setup with everything we needed. Great to have the option of closing one space off, as we had a noisy toddler with us!! Wonderful views and great child friendly fenced yard with the trampoline and sandpit.
