We stayed 2 nights in the Beach Break apartment. Lyall was very welcoming and provided great hospitality throughout our stay.The unit was spotlessly clean and contained all we needed. The location is extremely relaxing and the view from the apartment stunning. We could not have asked for more... Thank you Lyall. We will be back!!.
