  • Fantastic location and views

    Fantastic location and views. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Property was clean and tidy, nice furniture, good sized bedrooms, plenty of space indoors and out. Far better in person than the photos show - which is rare. Kitchen was well equipped for self catering, and there were plenty of handy extra's supplied - kayaks, bbq, board games, basic pantry supplies. We spent all our time on the amazing deck!

  • This property was better than we expected

    This property was better than we expected. Very clean and tidy we wanted for nothing. Great cards and games for the wet weather, very well equiped kitchen, plenty of fridge and freezer space, clean comfortable furniture, a great deck / outdoor space which is effectively another room. Great views and a very helpful next door neighbour. Launch and retrieve your boat $30.00 per day, very handy. A great place to unwind

  • Very well appointed property

    Very well appointed property. Has everything you need to have a fantastic holiday. Loved the added extras like board games, kayaks, storage, salt & pepper, cleaning products, beach towels, outdoor shower and lemon tree for the gin & tonics. We’ll be back.

  • Beautiful location

    Beautiful location. Unobstructed view to ocean which was a safe walk across the road. Having camp ground store across the way was great for any extras we needed. Fireworks o New Year's Eve an unexpected added bonus

  • Great house to stay in right across the road from the beach

    Great house to stay in right across the road from the beach. Comfortable for everyone staying and there was plenty of room as well as a large deck to admire the view from!
