Fabulous Position

Pros: Beach position
Cons: Storage for clothing and suitcases
Location: The beach has a shallow sandy entry which makes it a good spot for swimming with children.
Situated right on the edge of a beautiful bay this is the loveliest spot to spend time. Our room was a nice size with a good bathroom and well stocked kitchen although storage for clothes and suitcases is limited. As there was only 2 of us we used the beds in the second room. Walking across the well maintained grass past the hot tub, lounge chairs, bar b q and beach bar to step onto the beach was a treat. We also enjoyed drinks at the beach bar. Kayaks, boogie boards and sand equipment for kids is also provided. A really enjoyable stay.
