Great Views, friendly staff.
We had a lovely stay. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. We only gave them notice about my friends dietary requiremenrs when we checked in late afternoon and they went out of their way to have options available the next morning for breakfast. The view from the bedroom and lounge where breakfast is served was amazing.

We walked down to the beach at the head.
It's a easy walk down to the public beach. We enjoyed watching the violent surf smash against the rocks.
