On your front doorstep is the safety and seclusion of a private beach with space to run. The perfect environment for all ages and ideal for kayaking, learning to swim or exploring the sea life. Learn to fish off the nearby wharf or rest and revive with a good book.

“Magic! The house is just as you imagine and feels like is been loved by all since its 1860 inception. The bay is stunning, Greg’s advice on where to eat and where to fish was bang on – fantastic experiences every step of the way. Coming home to a basket of fresh firewood, the roaring fire, complete with the smell of wood smoke was unforgettably charming.”
