Rated 5 out of 5 by from I took my parents to Sunshine Cottage for a fishing weekend. We loved that we were right on the water and that there was excellent privacy. It was also a really good place for the elderly or less mobile as there weren't too many stairs or a far walk to the private jetty. We would definitely stay here again for a fishing trip - very relaxing and great views.
