          Absolutely brilliant spot right on the water. Comfortable motel rooms and cabins with a view of the water! Yes I stayed in that is available including a caravan and all but a tent. The amenities are clean and serviced regularly:-)

          We stayed in the Motel Units, everything was clean and comfortable. All facilities included. Sofa Beds aren't always the most comfortable sleep though. They are pet friendly, so our little dog had a ball as well.

          We loved it here! Thick, grassy sites, right on beach, clean, nice looking facilities and such friendly staff! Fridge & freezer in kitchen. Everything is well maintained and looked after. Will be one of our favourites!
