The Rocks was a beautiful beach house! Our family stayed for the New Year. It was wonderfully luxurious but also cosy and welcoming. The interior design was very stylish and all the furnishings ( especially the beds ) were so comfortable! Our boys loved the direct access to the beach and the hots tub was a great hit with them!...

Management response:

Thank you for staying. You are the perfect family guests. Do come back soon.

There are grind floor and first floor views direct onto the seafront and 2 main bedrooms where you can lie in bed in the morning with your cup of tea...

We were a party of 10 aged from 3 to 70 and all of us were totally wowed by The Rocks. If panoramic sea views and direct access to the beach weren't enough then the stylish luxury and high quality fittings throughout provided everything we wanted. A wonderful stay and one we hope to repeat one day.

Management response:

Thank you for staying Martin. You and your family were perfect guests and looked after the house so well. You will always be welcome
