Robert McClymont
A house on multiple levels, well appointed, roomy and clean. Great views from the lounge out to sea and to the north-east. Good choice of outdoor living spaces to follow the sun through the day and shelter when it’s windy.

I had the pleasure of renting this beautiful property over a long weekend. There were 7 of us and we found the house to be very spacious. I agree with some of the other commentary that this should be listed as a 3 bedroom property as the bed on the mezzanine floor has little privacy. We utilised the 2 upstairs bedrooms, the mezzanine and the flat. To cover some aspects of the property that you can't garnish from the photos.....the double beds upstairs were all very comfortable - can't vouch for the flat as I didn't lie on them. There is ample crockery and cutlery that would support large groups. There are multiple outdoor options with decking that offers shelter from the wind. The house is suited to those with mobility challenges - the lift takes you from the garage up to the main living floor and is big enough for a wheelchair, the main bathroom is spacious and has an open shower on tiles along with handrails etc. However, there are 3 steps up from the dining room to the mezzanine to access the bathroom etc - not sure how this would be navigated by the mobility-challenged. If you utilised every bed available including the fold out couches in the flat and in the lounge you could feasibly house 15 people. Robert was fantastic with communication. We had a great stay and happily rent again.
Response from Owner
Many thanks for taking the time to give feedback. We are in the process of adding a screen to give the mezzanine bedroom more privacy. This will be completed shortly.

We had such a lovely stay. This luxury family home has everything you need. The attention to detail ensures a safe and enjoyable interior environment. Plenty of space for family living including lots of childrens indoor games etc. The day and night views of the lighthouse are spectacular,not to mention the fabulous ocean views. We received excellent communication from the owner.
