Great beachside house

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location just a short stroll to the surf beach. The house has everything you can possibly ask for with marvellous amounts of decking area's for family gatherings or to find a spot to get some peace and quiet. The house is spacious and comes fully equiped with even a coffee machine for your morning caffeine fix.
