Amazingly presented house

Kym - 10th March 2022

A great place to spend time with family members for our sons wedding. Extremely well presented, great quality furniture and thoughtfully decorated.


Great house for large family

Renovated house in lovely surrounding area and good location. Nice walk to beach.A few suggestions would be for a larger barbeque so as to accommodate for amount of guests. Bedroom with loft very hot and could do with an air conditioner. Some plastic glasses for chn. Toaster was short circuiting and we used one from kitchenette. Sheets for fold out bed to be made available, as there were none. Living areas were great and we made lots of use of both the dining room and balcony. Would definitely stay again.Would definitely recommend this place.
