A superb location right on the beach ( 20 yards). The apartment is very comfortable, well equipped and Mary and Alan who look after it made sure we had all we wanted. We found it a good base to go to Cape Reigna and 90 mile Beach and explore the hidden bays, which are spectacular.

We had a lovely time here. Fantastic views on two balconies and many rooms. The managers were extremely helpful and the apartment was fabulously clean. There were also kayaks to use which was a plus because the bay is ideal for them. My only issue was the layout with our 4 bedroom apartment - the kitchen was at the opposite... More
