The Whales Tale

Perfect pet and child friendly house with an amazing sea view to relax and unwind. Abundance of wild bird life(fed daily-feed provided. Unfortunately due to all the birds no CATS allowed.

Whether walking my dogs on the beach, hooking a fish off the rocks or a swim in the ocean allows you to forget the world around you. You will unwind and feel refreshed.

Easy swimming beaches and splash rock pools make this a child paradise of memories to savour. 5 minute drive to seafood restaurant, Spur steakhouse or breakfast on the beach deck whilst watching your children in the Splash slides or swimming in the beach.
