      The cottage was very comfortable and centrally located. We enjoyed spectacular ocean views. The cottage and its contents were very clean and we had everything that we needed. Our hosts, Gavin and Amanda, were very friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely return in future. We can recommend this cottage to anybody who seeks great value for money.
