Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome property, great views, loads to do The house was excellent and suitable for multiple families. The kids loved the surrounding facilities (trampoline, flying-fox, basketball ring, table tennis) while as adults we simply indulged on the balcony admiring the views all weekend. Great stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent property! We really enjoyed our stay, the property was very close to the beach and the backyard area was great! A few wear and tears inside the house, but overall a very nice place to live for a week!
