We stayed in unit 2, the place was not properly cleaned and a bad smell hanging in the unit, couches not clean and carpet dirty. Not peaceful, neighbours big dogs wake you up early every morning.

We had a wonderful stay at Life at Sea. The accommodation exceeded our expectations and we enjoyed 4 days and 3 nights just relaxing and spending quality time together as a family over the Easter Weekend. Will definitely be back!!!

Wow! We were stunned at the beautiful unit and the closeness to the beach. It is really well equipped and we had a lovely stay there. There were just a few problems - the one bedroom door could not lock and the room light was broken. The fridge in the living room kept freezing everything. Both the showers had problems - the one moment the warm is nice and hot and then it goes to boiling and then to freezing all while you are not touching the taps. All in all it was a nice place to stay and we would recommend it after the showers are fixed.
