Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at Bluetide and loved every minute of our stay. The owners have thought of everything. Kids are fully cater for and the big kids (husbands) had the pool table for hours of entertainment. Yard was a delight with the cubby and swing set for the kids. The pool was clean and well maintained and there was loads of space for everyone. Great location too - across the road from supermarket and takeaway shops.

We will be back.
