5/5 Excellent

Lovely house with great views
We really enjoyed staying here with the amazing view and ability to use the spa pool. The house was clean and had what was needed. A bit difficult to work from there as there was only one table but we made it work.

5/5 Excellent

Really nice place - fantastic views
Nicely modernised home with everything you need. Incredible ocean views from the deck and living area. Quiet street. Stroll down to the beach at the end of the street, but its a bit of a hill so probably tricky to climb back up if you come back that way. Book this one - you wont be disappointed.
