We visited 31 Oct until 3 Nov for a short break. We found the owners to be charming and helpful. Cleanliness was excellent.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and received a warm welcome from Sarah and Fraser. Our room was very comfortable, bright and spotlessly clean. We felt very safe here with all the covid precautions and a plentiful breakfast was delivered each morning in a picnic basket to your door. It is in a great location with a short walk to the beach.

Excellent accommodation , extremely clean , bright and practical room with superbly comfortable bed.Sarah and Fraser were very friendly and helpful and great attention to detail as far as Covid precautions are concerned.
