About the property

Position perfect, this 2012 built, fully appointed home is just one minute's walk from the Normanville shopping centre, cafes, restaurants, hotel and amenities in the main street, yet is in a tranquil residential area. Like a free late checkout to extend your stay? Just ask if you would like a 12 noon checkout, and this can be accommodated whenever there are no arrivals on your checkout date.

An easy 10 minute, flat walk or 2 minute bike ride to the most beautiful family-friendly beach (ideal for little ones) with a jetty for shade and kiosk for fish and chips on the beach!

Relax and unwind with 2 separate living areas, open plan chef's kitchen, lounge and dining areas, this is the ideal home for chilled out getaways as a family or group of friends.

Perfect place to relax and unwind

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. It was close to shops, restuarants and beaches.

It was perfect for our bridal party to relax before the wedding.

It had an ipod/iphone dock which came to very good use.

A must stay for 2-3 families with plenty of space.

Lovely Family Get Away Home

  • 5 of 5

Lovely homey feel while still keeping the atmosphere of a seaside getaway. It was very easy for adults and children to have a relaxing stay. This home is excellently set up for a two family stay. The basketball ring and table tennis was a hit with the kids. We loved staying in this home and would definitely come back to stay again.

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything we needed,and easily accomodated the 12 adults staying. A short walk to the shops and eateries made it a fantastic location. Lovely and clean and beautifully furnished. I would definitely try to book this house again if the need arose.
