Rated 4 out of 5 by from Relaxing Beach Holiday The house was perfect for our needs. Kitchen and main bathroom are fantastic. It was lovely to sit on the deck and watch life on the river go by. We watched the winners of the Sydney to Hobart sail in. Great fenced yard & playground across the road for the kids.
