Amenities & Room:
fully equipped kitchen
the cottage was everything we could have hoped for
i called my hubby who was coming later and he brought with him a column heater which was great for the bedroom as the fire was the only heat source
just lovely! and very generous of the owners to donate all proceeds to charity
will definitely stay again but will take our column heater and fire lighters if going again in winter
it had everything we needed and the fire was most appreciated in winter
a lovely clean cabin which had all we needed
spring beach cottage was perfectly clean and had everything we needed for a great 2 night stay
we also really appreciated the flexibility with check in and check out times
we thought the flue might need a clean, but the owner responded very quickly and said the wood was a new batch and may not be dried out enough so told us where to get more wood from a different source
only issue we had was the fire kept going out and we had a very cold first night
the philanthropy of the owner was an added bonus
the next day we got the new firewood it was so much better and toasty warm
short walk to beautiful private white sand beach
close to beach, very quiet
we loved the amazing position of this property, so close to the beach and with lovely water views
the beautiful beach really is just across the road, the crash of the surf and the calls of the local birdlife were the only sounds
we were lucky enough to catch a picture of the aurora from the beach just across the road on our first nights stay and the milky way was stunning
