As the property goes down to the foreshore which can be slippy the property is not suitable for the very young or very old.
Guests must be able to use an outboard engine as access is only by a safety boat across the Percuil River - under 5 minutes.
Guests must bring their own linen, towels etc and clean at the end of the stay. Well worth it! Guests have been coming for over 10 years and still love it. It may be possible to find someone to clean at the end of the holiday for you.
