Guestbook comments from the manager
The cottage is stylish, yet homey and comfortable. With the lounges on the deck, it was just as relaxing staying at the cottage as walking on the beach. I would and will be recommending it to people so they can share our great experience. Marietta was excellent in looking after us and helping us with all our arrangements for our stay.
