  • The Beach House was more lovely than we could have imagined

    The Beach House was more lovely than we could have imagined. Very private, 180 sea views, right on the waterfront, and the stars at night are not to be missed! Thank you for letting us stay, we had an amazing weekend.

  • A lovely peaceful property which was perfect for our group

    A lovely peaceful property which was perfect for our group. More spacious than we anticipated and the separate spaces worked well for us. The Bush setting and harbour views make this a lovely spot for a get away. The Bach had everything we needed. All in all a lovely holiday home and all our group would highly recommend.
