Very cosy cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Very cosy cottage. Everything we needed was there. Beautiful nature. Our family enjoyed walks through the bush and playing badmington. And it's only 2 min drive to the nearest beach.

Lovely private cottage in bush.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely private cottage in bush. Clean, tidy, comfortable with helpful touches like cooking oil, salt and pepper and home grown honey. It is car distance to the beach if you have surfboards etc, but not too far.

Very tidy, clean and cute cottage. Lovely surroundings and excellent value for money. Our kids loved the 'I Spy' pamphlets, relative to the property, provided by the hosts.

Highly recommend.
