Secluded and quiet

  • 4 of 5

We had three marvellous days at Sea La Vie. It is on a quiet backstreet but only five minutes from the sea and shops. It is a very well designed house with everything that you might need and the rooms are very comfortable and spacious. The bedroom in particular is a delightful room, very restful and we slept like logs. There are wonderful wineries within easy reach both for tastings and buying but some, such as Crittenden, have fantastic restaurants. Overall, a lovely part of the world to holiday in and Sea La Vie was just perfect for us.

Great family house!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our holiday at Sea La Vie. Everything was just as described and spotlessly clean. It did remind me of my childhood holidays where we played board games. The beds were comfortable and our extra touches from Linda were greatly appreciated. Lovely quiet area and walking distance to the shops and beach. Thank you Linda for a relaxing stay.

Great little beach house

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Sea La Vie, and loved the house it reminded us of beach houses of our childhood - simple, spotless,comfortable and most importantly walking distance from the beach.

Linda was a great to communicate with and we will be returning for another break soon.

Great Location and wonderful host

  • 4 of 5

Cosy holiday home in a great location and value for money. The local IGA has been renovated and is a city it's self. Walking distance to the beach, restaurants, take away and cafes. Also, Linda's Queen bed has to be the most comfortable bed we have slept in. Complimentary inclusion of all the lovely bed linen and towels, made our stay stress free, which meant less things I needed to pack. We brought bikes with us and our young teenagers rode from Dromana to McCrae on their own. After we left the property and got home we realised we had left behind our bike rack tool. I called Linda who happened to be at the property. She located the tool and kindly offered to drop it off within the week. That same evening we happened to be out for dinner and I received a call from Linda. I was surprised to hear she was standing in front of my place to personally return the tool and refund my bond. She was so kind to go out of her way as she couldn't bare the thought of me driving around the city with this bulky bike rack on the back of my car. Linda is the perfect host with the perfect place to go with it. Thank you so much Linda for your kind hospitality and for the welcome gifts of fresh cherries, wine etc. Enjoyed them all.
