    Wonderful hilltop location with views west over the bay, and the bach was just below Sharon and Shane's house, fully equipped and with inside or outside sitting and eating.

    A nice bit of space with a view and bonus that the owners live right next door and were lovely and accommodating. We had a beautiful home-cooked dinner when we arrived and the wonderful couple were very indulgent with our 3 children introducing them to the dogs, sheep and guinea pigs. Really interesting to learn how the property generates its own electricity and very appreciative for all the other useful bits of information we got as well!
