We found this brilliant B&B by chance but it turned out to be fantastic. Our hosts were very kind and generously introduced us us to the delight of whitebait patties as the whole of the west coast seemed to be going crazy on fishing for these little treasures. Our kids had fun on the river in the kayaks and we enjoyed the very modern and nicely furnished holiday house. Not sure how to avoid the sandflies on the beach. Great quiet comfortable place to stay.
