About this listing
We have a spacious , self contained , one bedroom apartment with your own access downstairs at our home, no shared facilities . It is private which means you can enjoy your own space. We live upstairs and more than happy to assist as you require.
From the apartment you can see distant views of the mountains and ocean from the lounge , with garden seating and a small BBQ just for you. Off street parking. Only a 200 metre walk to the waters edge. We do offer a complimentary tea, coffee, sugar and milk on arrival. We are not a B&B so therefore do not offer breakfast but because it is self contained you can do your own thing.
