              This is really a very nice place for a getaway. Very quiet and not so windy. Nice clean open beach. This is a place to just wind down, braai, walk the beach and just relax.

              The house is large and situated in a stunning location. It was clean and had the basic essentials. The beds are horribly uncomfortable as they consist of a sponge mattress on a built in concrete slab base so are definitely not suitable for anyone over the age of 30. The utensils and crockery and pots in the kitchen were dirty and had to be washed before we could use them. There could also be more coffee cups and wine glasses in the house. Overall it is a lovely place and we had a very enjoyable and peaceful stay.
