  • This house was the perfect place for a getaway

    This house was the perfect place for a getaway. The lounge/deck were fantastic and large enough for our 8 person group. It is extremely well set up for children so our 1 year old was very happy too! The location is great, a very short walk to the beach. I would definitely recommend this house and would love to visit again in the future.
