  • We enjoyed our stay here

    We enjoyed our stay here. It's a nice little place and the price is very reasonable. The location is great, it's an easy walk into town or down to the wharf. The view to the harbour is lovely and the decking/lounge get lots of sun. We were pleasantly surprised at how warm the bach is, even now in winter.
