Three of us stayed here in March 2017for two nights.This is a well- located property on the Golden Bay beach, with beautiful landscaping of the grounds. It is presented and priced as a luxury resort, with beach views.Unfortunately our cottage did not have one.To be fair, once you get to the beach close by, the views are amazing, especially the rise of the full moon which was glorious to behold.On arrival we were met the owners, who were extremely friendly and helpful.Luggage has to be taken to the cottage via a wheelbarrow. The cottage is very well designed and furnished, and the amenities are good quality. The sofa bed was uncomfortable for our friend, who actually slept better without pulling it out ! Breakfast is a hamper, everything else is self catering.Laundry in the owner's premises before 9 am and after 5 pm.
Overall we were happy with the place, but feel it is too costly for what is on offer.
