The property is 12 minutes flat walk (2 min drive) to Sandy Bay, one of the best surf beaches in the country.

  • Wonderful property

    Wonderful property. Highly recommended for families! Wood fire worked like a charm to warm the whole house. We loved it. Short walk or drive to beach. Dog friendly.

    Wonderful place to stay, we had such a great time. So nice and peaceful with the rural backdrop yet still so close to Sandy Bay and the region's other spectacular beaches. Would highly recommend!
