Lovely weekend
Was a lovely little cabin, all we needed and had the basics. Some parts were modern but the view and deck won us over.

4/5 Good

Gorgeous spot
We had an amazing stay. The view and sunsets were incredible. Close to shops, beaches, cafe, fish and chips. Basic bach but clean and tidy and we found everything we needed. Just missing an outdoor table like the pictures and umbrella would be so handy. The bunk beds are fine for kids or maybe small adults. Would stay again for the views and it is a great base for exploring the magical west coast.
