Such a delightfully quiet sojourn, a perfect place too paint and create masterpieces

  • 5 of 5

What a find... everything one could possibly need was where it should be. Well equipped cottage, comfortable bed, clean linen, washing machine, air conditioning (not that I needed it, nor did I need the closed log fire) Close to the beach with lovely walks. Shop down the road or shopping 5” by car.

A sanctuary to relax and paint under the grape vine in the company of the local feathered community.

I’m reluctant to share this as I want it all to my self.

A credit to you Joy & Peter.

Thankyou and Bless 🙏?

Great beach house perfect for a weekend away. Has everything so no fuss. Deck and covered veranda for drinks and meals with pretty garden outlook. We'll be back with the pooch next time.

All you need is right here!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Blue Oars. As a family of 5 there was everything there that we needed. It was so close to the beach and local shop and just a couple of minutes away from restaurants. The house supplied everything that you would need to make for a great stay. We will definitely be back.
