What an awesome, awesome view! The two-bedroom unit was well equipped with all the home comforts one might need. We were very disappointed that we could only stay 2 nights and not 4 as planned, but a glitch in the system threw our booking out in favour of someone else :-(. We will be back to make up for it though. The couple who manage the property are really friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend this place.

We stayed for 2 nights in unit #1. On arrival the unit was ready for us and we were welcomed and shown around by Andre who is very friendly and helpful. The unit is beautiful and modern and very well furnished. There are 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, an open plan kitchen/lounge/diningroom, a lovely patio outside and each unit (there are 6 of them) has a covered (with shadecloth) carport outside the unit. And, of course, the cherry on top is the view which each unit has. Absolutely stunning!! And as the units are very close to the edge of the cliff, no-one can ever build in front of them. You can get down to one of the beaches via stairs from the cliff top but I wouildnt do it as they are very steep (I did try but the nerves kicked in!!).. Naturally, because of their positioning, one

We spent six nights here and had a wonderful time. The cottages are well equipped, beautifully furnished and well maintained. The views are beautiful! It is situated close to the beach. You can either walk down the road or you can drive. There is safe parking there. The beach is STUNNING and you can walk for miles. Make sure you take supplies as it's about a 19 KM drive into town. There is a little shop a short distance from the cottages but they may not have everything you are looking for. We will definitely go again. Really worth it and good value for money.
