The location is excellent and central, very close to the beach. Our cottage was too small for 4 people, but is ideal for a couple, though it was well equipped with everything we needed. My family had a perfect holiday

Couldn't ask for a better setting to enjoy our seaside holiday. The view from the balcony is spectacular. Rooms were comfortable with good mattresses. Gardens were in mint condition. Braai areas and swimming pool cleaned every day. Some of the interior needs an upgrade. Otherwise, needed nothing more to make this a superb home away from home.

Managers are fabulous and very helpful. They respond quickly and adress any complaints immediately.Apartment is basic and needs an uplift . Cleaning was poor. For the rest it's perfectly located and offers a comfortable stay.
