The whole apartment was spacious and warm. Beautiful big window/door looking to the beach and welcoming the sun every morning. Fantastic bathroom, very roomy. Bed and pillows a little hard, but that's your own preference. Would stay again for sure.

Beautifully presented with spectacular views over the beach. Thoughtful touches throughout. Comfortable and wished we had stayed an extra night on our driving trip around Tassie.
