Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relax on the deck We had a fabulous time staying here for a week. The house is well-equipped and the location, just across the road from the beach track, can't be beat. We spent many happy hours sitting out on the deck enjoying the quiet bush surrounds, and ducking over for a swim in the ocean whenever we felt like it!
