Great family property.

  • 4 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at Frolic Panoramic Coastal Retreat. Great ocean viewing from balcony--we had 3 whale sightings; an easy walk to wharf for fishing or to lighthouse for great bird watching. Will definitely plan on staying here again and will try to get our adult children and grandchild to join us next time. Even tho we stayed as a couple, it would be perfect for family groups--plenty of games, toys, books, dvd's in a comfortable, relaxed, low-maintenance setting. The kitchen is well equipped for any manner of small or large-scale cooking.
