  • Location and setting was perfect

    Location and setting was perfect. Shower almost nonexistent though.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thanks for your comment. Yes I agree that the shower is pathetic! A combination of unequal water pressure and silt from our bore that gets through and clogs the shower rose. We clean it out quite often but it doesn't take long to revert back. I recommend the cold water outdoor shower for a brisk wash down after a swim!

  • Perfect location on the water's edge in one of the world's most...

    Perfect location on the water's edge in one of the world's most beautiful coastlines. it satisfied our nostalgia for the perfect beach holiday shack of childhood memories. It evoked simpler times and yet still provided all necessary comforts. There were road repairs happening during our stay but that was temporary and didn't affect our enjoyment as we were out walking and exploring during the day.

  • We had a great stay here

    We had a great stay here. Beautiful views to wake up to and a good size for the 5 of us plus our dog. Would recommend a dehumidifyer to be used when the house is locked up for a while. Overall great stay and would def look at staying again!
