  • A beautiful house with more than enough room for our family of...

    A beautiful house with more than enough room for our family of 6. Could easily accommodate more. The house has every convenience imaginable and a stunning view out over the water. Couldn't ask for more. We even caught a lovely snapper off the rocks below. A little corner of paradise. Convenient location especially if you are taking your vehicle as just 2 minutes from Sealink vehicle ferry.

    Thanks for your great feedback. I am so pleased your family enjoyed their stay - even though the weather wasn't that wonderful. And I'm so happy you caught a snapper - they have been few and far between this year, possibly because of the weather! Lovely you had a great family catch-up.

  • Great location close to car ferry & beaches, ideal for the family

    Great location close to car ferry & beaches, ideal for the family. Lots of room and home comforts. Less of a bach and more of a home.

  • Great location not far from the ferry

    Great location not far from the ferry. Beautiful sunny spot sheltered from the wind with a great view of the water. Walking distance to the beach great for kids. My 4 year old loves the play house. Beautiful modern home would love to go back perfect for a family. Love the indoor outdoor flow.

    The house is lovely and equipped with everything you would need to make you feel right at home. The fire is lovely in the evenings, and garden in the daytime.
