Great house

We enjoyed a weekend here recently. Fantastic location close to everything. House was clean, well presented and was very comfortable for our larger group. Very large useable deck with bbq was great. We will definitely be back.

Absolute Tranquility

5 of 5
Watercolours is located in a peaceful and tranquil location. The ocean views are breathtaking. The sound of the rolling waves simply adds to the overall relaxation this property provides. The beach is a couple of minutes walk across from the property. We enjoyed our daily walks along the beach and simply exploring the surrounding areas. Christina was very welcoming and made our stay extremely comfortable in every regard. We can't thank her enough for her hospitality and overall kindness. In summary, if you need a break from the busyness of life, Watercolours is a wonderful property to simply relax, refresh and get re-energised again!
