Property had an amazing view and prime positioning. Suitable size for our family and great facilities including 2 pools and a tennis court. Only downfall was a little more maintenance is required as the kitchen sink was leaking theough the cupboard, the washing machine was leaking and so were a couple taps. When told maintenance sid come fix the leaking kitchen tap so not terrible.

Needs to be thoroughly cleaned, especially under things. Couch had hair all over it, found human finger nails on the floor. Washing machine didn’t work properly, can’t spin out without jumping around and making a racket. Did like the view and the quietness.

The views were spectacular, Sue at the front reception was very inviting and friendly, and there was a lock up garage. This is the perfect place for a family break with the beach rightbin your backyard. Room was great too, however beds and pillows could be better, they were not that comfortable.

Loved the spa bath looking over the ocean. The view was incredible and the silence sooo tranquil. Couch & bed were a bit squishy but still comfy.
