Gorgeous unique location - a rare gem.
If you want peace and privacy in one of the world's most beautiful locations then this property certainly ticks the box. The house is pleasant and comfortable. The pooch and I had a marvellous time kayaking on pristine waters where we saw absolutely no one.

Beautiful property, views and beach access
Beautiful property in a stunning location. Amazing views over the water and loved the short pathway to the beach. Sunsets over the water were magical. Judy the host was excellent and communication when needed was very quick. Pet friendly and very safe.
