It is frequented by pods of dolphins, dabchicks. seaeagles. swans & seals can sometimes be seen sunning themselves on the rocks. Glass doors in the master bedroom enables you to lie in bed and watch early morning fishermen departing, and pleasure boats drifting in. You can step out onto the deck to enjoy an early morning cuppa or a cool wine in the evening, and enjoy the spectacular sunsets. A staircase from the deck leads you to the water's edge where you can walk to the furthest point on the bay. For the adventurous you can follow the coast line to secluded Mickey's Beach and take the cliff top path to Randalls Bay and marvel at the Southern Ocean Vista.
