How did you like the accommodation?


The accommodation is in a lovely cottage style home, the rooms are clean and cosy. The host family are just lovely, the vibe is awesome, the beaches are simply stunning, uncrowded and upspoilt, nice uncrowded line up. The food is simply delicious. This is my 3 stay at this awesome place, and I plan to come back again very soon.

How did you like the surf lessons?


I am an intermediate to advanced surfer. On my previous stay I took lessons, they were wicked, fun filled and we checked all the local spots until we found the best beach to surf at that particular time. These guys go out of their way to make sure you get waves. They are super knowledgeable of the local area. The beaches are stunning.


Travelled with family

December 2019

How did you like the accommodation?


The accommodation is very cool, we stayed in the family room with our 3 boys, the space was perfect for us. The house is so cosy and feels like a home, the garden is huge and our boys had lots of fun running around and playing with the hosts, Hayley and Justin's 2 girls. The beach is a 300m walk and its perfect for families, lovely rock pools with tons of sealife, the waves come in and the kids can play while you relax. The beach is very uncrowded and really is paradise, and the water is very warm.

How did you like the surf lessons?


We all took surf lessons and they were awesome, Justin was super patient with the kids and they loved it. My husband and I both took lessons and we really progressed. We can't wait to come back and visit again. The beaches are beautiful.
