Staying at Hark Inn was a fantastic experience.

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Hark Inn was a fantastic experience. A very comfortable stay. The property has a great sense of space. Very well appointed and comfortable beds. Proximity to the beach, cafes and shops made it easy for the morning coffee or night time stroll. Loved our time here.

Fantastic location, Great for Family Holidays

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful week here with our children and grandchildren. Great location, close to the beach, the children's park and the centre of town all a short stroll away. The property has everything you need for your holiday and the large enclosed back yard was a real bonus. Anne and Gavan are wonderful hosts. Highly recommended for a family holiday when you want to get everybody together.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a weekend getaway to the coast attending family celebrations and this was the perfect place for downtime. Central location and only a short walk to walk to supermarkets, take away and surf shops which was super handy with a bub. Portacot was also available saving us the trouble (and car space). House has a fresh family feel. Spacious with plenty of indoor and outdoor areas for all to have downtime. Loved it and will be booking again for our next visit to the coast.

A fabulous house.

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful property for our family holiday including four generations. The house is very comfortable with a lovely backyard for the children to play in. Ideal toys were provided inside and out for our grandchildren to play with which they greatly enjoyed and appreciated. The house is ideally positioned with walking distance to beach, shops and a large playground. The welcome pack was indeed very welcome and the owners of the house were wonderful to work with from start to finish.

We all certainly hope to come back to this house as it exceeded in meeting all our needs. Thank you very much.
