5/5 Excellent

Extremely relaxing
We had just completed the Queen Charlotte track and were looking for somewhere to relax and unwind. The place was perfect. Short walk to the beach, spa pool on the deck and lovely views. Kitchen was very well equipped and beds were comfortable. Superb!

A hidden gem
This property is fabolous. Bear in mind you'll be staying at the ground floor. Very well appointed, rooms are huge and comfy, kitchen is modern with all the must-have and more, the view from the top deck is a dream. Perks are out of this world: wi-fi, Sky Sports, heat pump, dishwasher, access to the upstairs spa-pool (oh good, how cool that spa is!). We had a little issue with the hot water on the first day, and Yvonne sent someone very quickly to solve it - we were let to stay an extra day free of charge, which was much appreciated. The beach is 1' away afoot. Kids loved it, we took our own kayak and had a blast. We will come back one day. Thanks Yvonne!
