an example is the added staircase which is half covered over by the walkway to the upstairs bedroom
the tight turning area and hedges in the front garden could make it difficult if you were planning on bringing a boat or trailer
clean & spacious
kitchen and bbq needs, as well as the beddings and towels are all very clean and well catered for
the house was clean, with beach right across the road
host was super responsive
house is well set up generally
hopefully the oven will be fully operational for the next guests
the property was amazing! it was like going to a family holiday house where the memories have always been great
my only wish may have been to have the back garden fenced in, so the 2 year old could run around with out being closely supervised
excellent location across from the beach
great positioning right across from the beach and easy walking distance to local shops
local shops are just a block away
the best aspect of this property is location
so close to cafes and across the road from the beach
