With four of the bedrooms interchangeable between super-king beds and twin beds, this property is ideal for large groups and adaptable to every party make-up, and with each bedroom boasting an en-suite, consideration has been given to the privacy of the guests.

This is a great house for a big family group. Plenty of communal space for all ages to follow their own interests. The kitchen was ideal for groups to share in the cooking and for all to eat together. It has a wonderful view of the river, and is close to the beach with surfing and sailing activities.
