Welcome to Sea La Vie!
The perfect location for a relaxing, restful, and stress free holiday as a couple, for a family or just to hang out with friends.
Step out the front door and you are literally two (2) minutes walk to the beach, the pier, a terrific children's playground on the foreshore, and the shops! Brilliant! Dee’s Kitchen is just round the corner where you can enjoy breakfast and a coffee – great! Or head to Two Buoys which is only a few shops further down on the foreshore and enjoy tapas and a glass of wine. The ‘ice creamery’ is also close by with great ice creams on the beach or enjoy fish and chips at the local fish and chip shop which is great value. We are very close to everything including grocery stores, chemist, banks and the post office - all just a few minutes walk away which means you can visit the shops, restaurants or the beach at your leisure, yet pop back to your accommodation at any time with little inconvenience. Only two (2) minutes drive to Safety Beach for yachting and sailing calendar events or a few minutes drive to Arthurs Seat or the local drive in for a movie.
The Peninsula Hot Springs/ Day Spa Centre, golf and wineries are also only a short drive away.
So what is the Sea La Vie like to stay at?
