This property was stunning, it was peaceful even with neighbours, beautiful walks, close enough to supermarkets to get essentials if needed and not far from stunning waterfalls and beaches. The property is well looked after and the owners were extremely helpful. Would highly recommend for any type of break away, we went with 2.5yr old and 11yr old.
