The house met our basic needs extremely well. It's design provided plenty of space for the 3 generations of our family: husband & I, plus adult child & teenage grandchildren. The dogs seemed contented with the yard (high fences & plenty of space to explore), rear carport area & wide covered side deck, although the front deck was exposed & drenched by the heavy storms during our stay. The location was very good: dog-friendly beach, grocery shop, pub & cafes were all within several minutes walk. While cooking utensils, crockery, cutlery, cleaning materials were more than adequate, the house did lack the little "extras" that we have experienced when renting similar properties over the past few years: eg: there was no DVD/CD player and the only cooking condiment was some salt. Also parking is not easy for a multi-car family. Access to the rear carport for a largish vehicle (eg Landcruiser) is possible but inconvenient; and although the street is also quite narrow, most people in the street seemed to park on the footpath, so we did too. Overall, these small negatives were far outweighed by the properties good features.
