Emily Roper
A fabulous house and garden with more than enough space for our family of five and two friends. Driveway space for cars and a boat, and one minute from the bay with beach and boat ramp. We loved our stay here, thank you.
Beautiful spacious house and grounds with every little thing provided. Comfy beds, amazing showers, and heaps of space for all our adult family and their small children. Table tennis was a huge hit! A tranquil hidden oasis a short walk away from the beach. Thanks Catherine and Paul!
