Great property

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, well-appointed property in a great position. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day stay and would highly recommend this property. We particularly liked the fact that we were able to have our dog with us.

Excellent home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Extremely comfortable accomodation which felt like being at home. The accomodation had numerous thoughtful inclusions that helped make staying away from home much easier. Very accessible for wheelchairs. We will certainly stay again. Great for smal children.

Well Positioned

  • 5 of 5

Macnicol Cottage is well positioned close to shops,surf beach & Dog Friendly beach. We have stayed at both Macnicol and Murray cottage and find them equally as good as each other. The cottages are well appointed, comfortable and very clean. The owners Bruce and Robyn are very welcoming and accommodating which completes and holiday.
