    It is a cosy little hideaway, which provides all you need for a short or a longer stay. We found it to be clean and well maintained, the kitchen is well equipt , the shower/toilet is nice and the double bed is comfortable. I hope we will get another chance to go there again.

    Lovely modern, clean,tidy and comfortable holiday house. Very suitable for a couple. Everything you need is there. Lovely outdoor private seating and Sun umbrella. On a lovely quiet street just around corner from beach. Would definitely stay again. Very well presented property.

  • We absolutely loved it here

    We absolutely loved it here. Perfect get away for the long weekend. We stayed with 2 younger kids. Although there is only 1 bedroom we managed really well with the pull out couch.Top location. The cottage was super clean and everything we needed was there. Comfy beds and high quality bedding. We can't wait to come back in the future. Thanks Kim for sharing this lovely place.
