Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thanks Annchen for arranging and having all ready.The access to the beach proved challenging and we only managed that twice. The rest of the time we accessed the main beach at Blythedale. Kids enjoyed the low tide the most when al the pools were accessible and they could swim safely. Very enjoyable and definitely a possible next time.

Thanks Annchen, we had the most awesome stay at your Family Beach Cottage. Hired it for family and friends for a wedding at Palm Dunes and it was so lovely we did not want to leave. Private, spacious, clean, amazing front entertainment area, everything you need provided and its own private beach. What more could you ask for and a huge bonus - Happiness looked after us so well. We will all definitely be back soon. Special thanks also to SafariNow - as always a pleasure to deal with you.

It was generally comfortable with ample space and cooking utensils and facilities. Beautiful trees and easy access to the beach. (Stairs would have helped get back up!)
