The grounds are well cared for and it's a pleasure to walk around checking out all the great plants. Great pool and BBQ area's along with a tennis court which we used. The beach is just a few steps away. We appreciate the friendliness of management, Kerryn and Peter and their knowledge of the area, they go above and beyond to make sure that our experience with them is a wonderful and memorable stay. We will be back. Kindest regards" Liz and Charles (5th March, 2018)
