  • The views are amazing! Day and night, it is an artists dream...

    The views are amazing! Day and night, it is an artists dream. You could sit on the deck in the sun and get lost in them. But the bach itself seemed as though it had not been visited in months, there were mouse droppings on the bedding, the seating, the fridge and kitchen areas. There was also a wasps nest outside on the deck that made eating outside during the day a risky business.

    We appreciate your honest feedback. Both of these issues are a first for us and have now been dealt with.

  • Location could not be better

    Location could not be better. The photos don't do justice to the exquisite view. It's possible to sit for hours just watching the changing colours over the sound and the boats and activities going by. The property is well equipped with all you'll need for cooking, BBQ's and some good DVD's in case of bad weather. Do bring insect repellent as the sand flies enjoy the balcony too! Very private and wonderfully quiet.

  • We had a wonderful few days

    We had a wonderful few days. Access drive was scary but only had to do it once. There was much, much more kitchenware etc available than we could have dreamed. It helped to make a very comfortable stay. Thanks for the experience Glenys cheers Dorothy
