    We loved the location. Being a little bit out of town but right on the beach was an absolute winner. The Koala in the tree out the back, does it get any more Australian. Loved the bath with that incredible view.

    We received a very clean, quality and reliable service. The location was very good. The hamper delighted us. We felt at home. We can't wait to come again soon.
