Now for the good and the less good: Good The house has windows on all sides so it's light bright and has the most amazing views across the forest to the ocean. The bed was very comfortable, the freestanding bath in the ensuite has an incredible view, all the windows were screened from bugs, (which is a deal breaker in the forest) and wildlife abounds. The open fire is romantic, the kitchen well appointed with a great coffee machine and all the gadgets you'll need. Less Good The plot next door is being developed, so when the builders are present it is quite noisy. Check for latest developments on that front. The windows have vast metal venetian style blinds on the outside, which are at present broken and fixed in the down position. You can see, but the amazing view is obscured. We spend most of the time out on the fabulous balcony for this reason. The drive way is incredibly steep, but that is how you get the amazing view. The fire is romantic, but it is quite smoky. Overall: Highly recommended. We spent two weeks and could have spent two months.
