The property was perfect. Clean and well maintained. The thought that has gone in to the finer details (appliance manuals, kitchen supplies, etc) was also much appreciated. Great location as well. Highly recommend.

Good place to relax.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Beach House, Everything was in the house that I needed and more. The beds were comfortable, lovely BBQ. My son came down on the Sat.night with the children and they really enjoyed their stay. It is good that you can shut the gates to the street, this makes the place safe for the children. We hope to come down again, maybe next year.
