Beach patrol within walking distance. Local cafe on beach also within walking distance.. great to walk along in the evening for that special dinner. The Top 10 Holiday Park has a large heated pool and spa with a water slide which is great to keep the children occupied if they want a change from the beach. It is open to the public for a nominal charge for swimmers apart from the Xmas/New Year summer holiday. Go check it out .. This is a great facility within walking distance from the Bach.

Not as good as its sounds. No sky as advertised even with your own sky card and wifi is non existent. Floor is very uneven and rotten by dining table. Barbecue is to old and dirty to safely use and rear deck needs work before some one falls through. Really disappointing as last time it was great.
Response from Owner
Hi, We apologise if your stay was disappointing and it does concern us greatly. The wifi issue was caused by Vodafone and it did take them a couple of days to fix it which was very frustrating. The Sky does work with your own card - the card goes into the satellite receiver under the TV. It doesn't look like a regular sky box but does work. There is no excuse for a dirty bbq - it is only 3 years old, but is should be cleaned after each visit and we have the property checked every time its rented so it should always be clean.I will raise this with the company that manages our property.We had the floorboards checked out last year and replaced some. We will again get this checked next week and address any issues. I really hope that these matters didn't spoil your holiday, and can assure you that we take these very seriously and will rectify any outstanding matters straight away.
We had the most wonderful week at Porched and would definitely holiday there again. Perfect location, great amenities, lovely kitchen and very comfortable home. Suited our family of 5 down to the ground and with three boys boogie boarding and learning to surf the outdoor shower was a godsend. This is a lovely beach house with views of the water and plenty of places to relax. Thank you.
Such a great location, short walk to the beach. Light and bright house with all needs met wonderfully ! Can't wait to rent this lovely spot again soon.
