Totally exceeded our expectations!!! The views are out of this world!!! Such a lovely place to stay and reconnect with our family. Easy access to the beach and wonderful place to stay regardless of what season or weather. Would recommend wholeheartedly!

Beautiful location overlooking the beach. Lots of wildlife, saw a sea lion sun bathing on the beach too. I will recommend to my friends.

This house is amazing! The views of the beach are gorgeous! We used the master bedroom (we didn't use the other 2 bedrooms), and the bed was comfortable with nice quality pillows. The kitchen is very well stocked, a/c works great, & there were beach chairs to use. We enjoyed our stay here so much and would love to come back!

The Lookout as described overlooks the beach which is amazing. Great walking, amazing variety of wildlife. A different view and experience each day. A lovely quiet community which promotes nature at its absolute best. The home is extremely comfortable with a few quirky levels. Loved it!

What a fabulous place! The bach is comfortable, private and exceptionally clean. Karitane beach is wild and beautiful. We had a wonderful stay here and Edinburgh Short Stays were very good to deal with.
