A sunny little place
Lovely, clean place, recent renos, very sunny with lovely places to sit inside and out in all weather. It’s a quiet street and an easy walk to the beach or cafés. Great yard for the dog. Looking forward to staying again, thanks Rob!

Time out
True relaxing shack getaway for all the family. Everything you need and plenty to keep you occupied. Beautiful polished boards and nice new kitchen and bathroom but it doesn’t loose its feel of the era it belongs too. Great for the dog who loved the yard and the outdoor areas. Also a very tasty nectarine tree in the garden. Would stay again.
