Dover is a lovely quiet neighbourhood. While the Gap is close enough to enjoy, we are far enough that all you will hear in the evenings is the surf on the Maxwell Coast and the whistling frogs.
At the end of the street there is a small secluded beach called Rainbow Beach to watch the sunsets or surf. This is a turtle nesting beach where, in the fall, you can watch hatchlings run toward the sea! Turn left and you come to Maxwell Beach for body surfing and long walks. Turn right and within one block you find lovely Dover Beach, offering beach chair and umbrella rentals, watersports and kiosks selling local food and drink. All these beach choices within 5 minutes walk!
Shop for souvenirs and clothing in The Gap - just 4 blocks away. At night The Gap comes alive, offering live local entertainment from Jazz to Reggae and more, a myriad of restaurants both casual and fine dining. Tennis is available at 2 resorts in the neighbourhood. Golf within 3 miles. Public transport is readily available as well as taxis.
The house is very secure with security bars on all windows and iron gates for both the front and back doors allowing you to let breezes through when you're home and still have total peace of mind. An in-wall safe is provided for storing your valuables.

What makes this house unique
Watch the sunset from the patio or the beach at the end of the street. Listen to the birds sing in the morning. Stroll through the neighbourhood, down to visit the barista on the corner for a great cappuccino, and walk the Maxwell coast.
Guestbook comments from the manager
Thank you Michelle and Peter for having made our stay over the past 5 weeks in your house such a pleasant and comfortable stay. Beach – restaurants and attractions. How wonderful! Our favourites were the 360 Island Tour with Coconut Tours as well as the Deep Sea Fishing Tour. Enjoyed reading during quiet moments and simply chilling out. This was a family holiday that allowed us previous time to bond and live one day at a time.
Special thank you to the dedicated staff who were very efficient from the moment we stepped on this beautiful island.
