Do your own thing and enjoy this fantastic area and amazing location!!
I enjoyed my stay and was immediately made to feel at home by Lisa and family (including two very friendly dogs). The description of the accommodation was accurate and access to outdoor cooking and proximity to the surf enriched the experience.
The host was polite and came down to greet me when I arrived. They accommodated me on late notice which was appreciated.
The downstairs apartment was fun as it had a 7 person spa, table tennis games area and most of all directly across from the beach. Nicely priced. ;)
Arrived in the dark, no lights on for us. Very small under house flat. No view, neat and tidy, but very very basic. Not even a tea bag supplied. Seemed overpriced for what it is. Have stayed in lots of places, get use to expecting a bit more.
Hi Lisa, I feel our description and pictures are accurate of what we offer, so please let me know if there is something I have missed there that misled you. As for being 'very basic' we offer a comfortable private flat, with dvd's, games, hot tub, table tennis, darts,
trampoline, bicycles and are right on the beachfront. We charge a comparable per person rate to the dormitory rooms at the backpackers on the highway. So I would value your feedback also on how I can improve on what we offer, apart from adding tea bags, as we want our guests to be happy, so would be appreciated to get that information from you, thanks Lisa
A nice place with all the equipment you need for cooking etc. Great location close to the ocean. The host Noel was very friendly and relaxed.
