Amazing, spacious and clean.

We had a great holiday at 'Life's a Beach'. Loved the location, close to beach. The house had everything we needed and was very comfortable. Loved our stay.

Serenity at its best!

Birnam provided us with a real sanctuary and we have never relaxed and rested so much as when we stayed here! The birdlife is extraordinary and the peace and quiet is amazing! It is our ideal location for a recharge and we are looking forward to coming back! Thankyou Chris for sharing your slice of heaven!
