Would definitely rebook


We had a lovely time at this cottage. Very cozy and minutes away from the public beach. Very nice and friendly neighbourhood. The home is equipped with everything you need and some special touches. Great selection of board games. Would definitely rebook. - Sivapalan (July 2017)
