What Past Guests Are Saying
Wonderful family holiday
The cottage is charming, creatively decorated with a joyful ambiance. Rooms are spacious and clean and the outdoor area is delightful. The cottage is within 20 minutes of shopping and other amenities, so no need to lug a large supply of groceries or necessities. Close walking distance to the beach. Quiet, family oriented neighbourhood.
You might want to bring your own coffee maker. The one supplied makes a good pot of coffee, but takes a long time to brew.
This cottage exceeded our expectations
The cottage itself was beautiful - very clean, with a unique decor theme. It was very close to the beack - which was very clean, and not at all crowded. It would have been nice to have a dishwasher at the property, and it would have been nice to be able to use the fireplace. The check-in time was a little bit awkward - not really early enough to enjoy the day at the beach, or really do much more than arrive and get unpacked before dinner.
It was ok but I wouldn't rent it again.
The beach was no good--we walked several hundred metres out and it was still rocky and shallow. All our feet were so sore after that trek out and back that we didn't go back to the beach for the whole week. We drove to Balm beach every day instead. The cottage didn't have curtains which meant that we didn't get to sleep in past 630am, which didn't make it a very restful holiday. Couldn't text as there was no cell reception. However, it was clean and quiet.
A Series of Unfortunate Events.
From the pictures the place looks great, but you don't really notice that in the first shot of the cottage their neighbour is in the background. The cottage itself is nice and the beds are fine, but the couch, although great to look at, is not that comfortable. My wife was pregnant at the time and we would have appreciated a place to just lounge on the rainy days. Through no fault of the owner, the week we were there there was a massive amount of construction and the entire cottage literally shook as new roads were being built. The outdoor fire pit is in the front yard overlooking the road instead of being private and the beach isn't quite as close as described. It's a very nice place to visit, but it's not the private get away we were hoping for.
