“Nice place”

Reviewed 25 Jun 2017

Super clean and very well equipped house. Although designated as a "Beach House", location is behind a 50m high dune with no direct sea views. No central heating.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review. We still feel it is a beach house, as you can walk to the beach from the house and the sea views are merely 30m from the front decking, where we have set up an outdoor sitting patio area. The house is eco-designed with double glazed windows throughout and for Australian climate along with the cosy log fire and the lounge chair wraps provided, this is sufficient to stay snug and warm during Australian winters.

Owner's reply: Thank you kindly for taking the time in your busy life to write this review. I'm glad you made the comments about the warmth of the house, along with the double glazed windows we feel this is enough in an Australian climate and keeps in line with our eco-design.
