    Amazing views, fantastic bush track walks down to the ocean or to the flat grass area where we took loads of photos and played petanque. The Cottage is warm and very cosy super clean and lovely new linen. The shower had fairly good pressure, great bath towels. Love this do it and we will be back again soon for a weekend break.

  • Excellent views

    Excellent views. The cottage is warm and cosy and has everything required for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. The place is lovely and clean and made for a great holiday destination. It was lovely to wake up to sea and bush views. Great selection of DVDS for a quiet day in. Very private spot where we felt a million miles away from anywhere. A great place to relax. Highly recommend :)
