Just needs sport channel options and the pillar next to the braai needs protection against heat and smoke staining.

A perfect place for us four with enough space for everybody. The lovely cottage is located in a quiet and safe neighbourhood with beach, shops and restaurants in walking distance. We enjoyed staying in a light, clean, very well kept and equipped house with a breathtaking view. Thank you for a great stay. Hope to be back!
