Five minutes walk to the centre of town, this charming fully-furnished family home is set among trees in a quiet location across the road from Gleeson Park. This reserve is mainly lawn and trees with a small playground for children, and is suitable for family games and picnics ... bring your badminton net!

Designed and built by an architect in the 1960s, the quirky home has many interesting features including a narrow sky-view strip that runs the length of the roof. Very little has been modified over the years, apart from the original balcony. This was completely rebuilt (2017) to comply with modern building-safety standards.

The master bedroom upstairs has a small bridge that leads across to an elevated private garden with fruit trees.

While the main bathroom has a shower, toilet and bath, upstairs there's a second toilet with hand basin.

Being a chalet style with open stairs, our holiday home is not ideally suitable for wee toddlers, however we have a portacot for babies.

Off street parking is available for up to three vehicles.

  • This beautiful chalet is comfortable and well set up

    This beautiful chalet is comfortable and well set up. The location is excellent - it is handy to shops, sea, and tourist attractions. We had a nice BBQ outside one evening in the attractive outdoor area. We also enjoyed walking on the tracks and steps nearby.

  • Very nice house with everything that you need

    Very nice house with everything that you need. The location is close to town and in a quiet street. The beds and furniture are all comfortable and we slept very well. The house can get hot on sunny days, but there is a ceiling fan that helps a lot. As mentioned in the description there are some internal stairs that aren't suitable for very young kids, but our 3 year old was fine on them after a warning to be careful. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
