Cute historical cottage
The property was so cute. It was easy to get access to and easy to navigate around. It was a minute walk from the beach as well. The house had everything we needed. Dean was very easy to communicate with. It’s a lovely house and we have already told our mates about it.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely place to stay
We thought it was a really lovely place to stay, Clean, very comfortable and everything we needed was there. There was easy access to all of the local towns. Just one suggestion - we couldn't work out how to use the oven so it would be great to have the oven instructions in a kitchen drawer :)
