Catriona was lovely to deal with. Our space was clean, spacious and had an amazing zen to it. The view out to the garden area is spectacular. We would definitely stay again. Tracie & Colin

Catriona’s place is lovely. It’s practically a house to yourself on Mt Martha beach - that’s how private it feels It’s a short drive/ walk up a side street from the beautiful coast It has a great cafe on that corner (& many others nearby) The timber “cabin” is set in a lovely…
