The house is situated right on the golden sandy beach and you can wake up in bed and check out the waves with uninterrupted views from the main bedroom. We have recently replaced the window with a full width patio door (with safety restrictor) to allow full benefit of the view; we are hoping to add a balcony in the near future.

The beach is a few minutes walk over your own “secret” path across the dunes. The sand is fine and great for sand castles.There is often volleyball,football and beach cricket and on Tuesday nights surf lessons for children with Kingsurf and during summer, pony rides!
