Renee Watson
Gorgeous place to stay. Well-appointed and furnished. The shower was lovely and the bed of so comfortable. Great access to the beach and a good base to explore the area. Throughly enjoyable stay. Caught a great snapper from the kayak.
Susan Shallcrass
We loved staying in this beautiful holiday home, it was clean, warm, comfortable, and convenient. Some of our favourite things were watching the sun come up over the water, walking on the beach, fishing from our kayaks right in front of the house, and the friendly locals. We would definitely come back and stay again.
Marilyn Loken
Accommodation exactly as described. Beautiful beach location, well maintained, clean and tidy. Caretakers were friendly, helpful and responsive to needs and inquiries. We stayed just over a month and would do it again if we have the chance.
