Loved our 3 bedroom, 2 bath condo! Perfectly clean and well equipped. The deck and living room look right across at Rabbit Island with the Mapua wharf just down the beach. So fun to watch the boats, the ferry, and all sorts of water activities....More

We were greeted warmly on arrival to this idyllic place. Fabulous views and location a stones throw from restaurants and the ferry. Surprisingly quiet and amazing views of rabbit island and the estuary. A little unfinished in places but otherwise perfect! Would definitely come again!
