Large balconies provide stunning uninterrupted views of cal beaches, glistening blue water and rugged mountain ranges. When you drag yourself away from that view - the house is spacious and simply furnished, with expansive golden wooden floors. All living areas face the water with access to the deck.

Outdoor furniture and BBQ supplied - enjoy dining on the deck, lazing on the sun lounger or beating the heat below the umbrella while enjoying the views across the bay.

  • Great property with loads of space to have a group of people

    Great property with loads of space to have a group of people. Well stocked with everything you might need. The deck is fabulous.

  • This house is in a great location and very spacious

    This house is in a great location and very spacious. We had a large group and it suited us very well. It seems to be undergoing some renovations (new bathrooms complete etc) and is definitely a well used family holiday house with an 'eclectic' decor. Everything is there that you need. The views are incredible.

  • The location is great but can't overcome the deficincies

    The location is great but can't overcome the deficincies. Specifically, the property is fantastically dirty. All of the cookware, glassware, and flatware had to be cleaned prior to use. Cobwebs had to be swept from the dining chairs and table, and the family room furniture was black with dirt (check out the arms of the couches). The throws over the furniture did little to disguise the dirt. Canisters in the pantry were foggy with fingerprints and accumulated grime. Remodeling is incomplete

    Owner/manager responds:

    We appreciate your feedback - as you have identified there has been significant renovations at the property in the weeks leading up to your stay. New roof, windows, insulation, walls, plastering, bathroom etc in portions of the house. It is disappointing to hear that despite the considerable effort to clean after this building work, some things were missed. We will speak to the cleaning company about the specific items you have mentioned & ensure these are rectified.

  • The house is spacious and fit the five of us comfortably

    The house is spacious and fit the five of us comfortably. The view is amazing and the ambiance couldn't be better than in a summer evening when the breeze and a glass of wine chill you down after a hot day at the beach :)
