Our extended family spent a wonderful few days at Beachcomber, which is located a few metres from a quiet beach, yet is in a great location to see the attractions at the Eastern end of the island. The house is delightful and looks out over the water. It is spacious and beautifully decorated. Nothing has been overlooked and everything that...

Management response:

Thank you Norma. We are happy your family had such a good holiday at Beachcomber, it really does work for groups such as yours. We would love to welcome you back again in the future.

It is a large well equipped house overlooking the beach, with a spacious and comfortable lounge area and a kitchen with everything you needed.

We travelled with 6 adults and 4 young children and this holiday home was ideal for us. It is a peaceful location and the house has plenty of space which is comfortable for a crowd, a minute's walk from a pristine beach with wide shallows safe and inviting for children. There were wallabies outside the house and on nearby roads...

Management response:

We are so pleased your family had such a great stay. I know the children love the wildlife experience with our local wallabies who really seem very unfazed about sharing their home with us humans, even to the point to helping themselves to my precious plants!
