    The property was quite spacious and having two separate living areas (dining and lounge) and the indoor/outdoor flow worked well for us. The location was good.

  • Great place, warm cosy, great view, close to park, beach, walks

    Great place, warm cosy, great view, close to park, beach, walks. Fully fenced, so toddler safe - and a good lawn area to run about it. Also close to Cafe and Mr Grumpy's (amazing burgers!!). And everything else to support a great stay. We had a great time relaxing and having fun - many thanks! Would easily look to come again!! :o)
