Loved our week at the Sea Shanty. Very relaxing, homely kiwi batch. The view was stunning from every window in the living space. We could just go straight across the road for a swim/ play on the beach. Stayed with our 4year and 9month old. Liked it was fully fenced. Would love to return for another stay in the future😊
