The massive terraces, affording panoramic views of the beach and surrounding coastline, are so well appointed that one is loathe to wander down the road to the beautiful Kings Beach. The furnishings and fittings are all to a high standard as was the cleanliness of the apartment. From the initial enquiry through to the booking and subsequent rental Melissa was very easy to contact and genuinely "interested" in her guests. We will definitely be back to Salt on Kings at some stage in the future and will have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this high end accommodation to friends and family.
