We spent three nights in this wonderful cosy location after driving appr. 20+ kilometres on a farm track but it's worth. Our room was one of the ocean view chalets with a chimney which we could see from the bed, very romantic. We also ordered massage in the chalet, very convenient. It takes a moment to get to the beach but the owners were pretty creative, you can choose between several hikes, shortest way takes appr. 15 min. The beach is wonderful wild but also clean and from top of the dune we could watch whales. Apart from the private beaches there are several activities offered, e.g. horse riding on one of the “semi-wild” ones or mountain biking. The owners were very helpful / supportive in every aspect, we really felt welcomed very warm-hearted. If you would like to get a picnic served you select the menu in the morning and it will be delivered to one of three places with wonderful views.
At the end one final comment: Don't be surprised if you hear noises at night, sometimes monkeys jump on the roof, which wakes you up. No issue if you remember and accept you are pretty close to mother nature.
