  • Location amazing, right on the beach

    Location amazing, right on the beach. Safe swimming beach for kids. Main house (unit 1) very well equipped and recently decorated. Unit 2 needs a bit of love. We had 4 adults and 4 kids and based ourselves in unit 1 and only used unit 2 to sleep 1. Great spot, would love to come back one day.

  • The location right on the beach was superb

    The location right on the beach was superb. It was a short walk to the ferry and a place selling coffee, but the view from the deck was so lovely we spent most of our time there. Unit 1 was our main cooking and living area and had a well equipped kitchen. The beds were good. We had a wonderfully relaxing enjoyable time there.
