This is my new favourite home away from home. The very comfortable studio had everything I needed, including beach towels in a handy carry bag and tempting treats in the fridge. Complimentary breakfast in my room was excellent as was the espresso machine. A short walk to the beach, a quick drive the shops… A wonderfully quiet location. Next time I’ll borrow one of your bicycles to enjoy the easy path along to the Swell Festival. Thanks for everything

Lovely place to stay! So close to the beach. A short drive to shops and other amenities. Very clean, neat and tidy, quiet spot, lovely decor. Airconditioning plus a fan in the room kept us very comfortable, and comfy beds gave a good night's sleep. Kitchenette in the room which was a bonus. Heartily recommend this place!
