We stayed here last week, and had a lovely cosy time. It's just across from the beach, which is really scenic, with Mussended Temple visible from the front windows. There were bunk beds for the kids and a cot and stair gates for our toddler. The owners left some firewood for us, so we were able to have a roaring fire on a cold autumn evening.

The cottage is situated right across from the beach and the perfect location for a nice family visit. We have a 2 year-old baby and loads to carry so were relieved to know that all the rooms and the toilet is downstairs. The owners are nice and friendly and have thought of everything, from travel cots and extra mattress for the baby, to a welcome kit with a comprehensive visitor’s guide. The place is tidy and spotless and the kitchen cupboards well stocked. All in all a kid-friendly place in a relaxing location.

I stayed at the cottage around the May weekend holiday period. Summer is approaching and this house is the perfect location to be, with the ocean view and nearby natural scenery. The resort feel reminds me of San Diego!
