"Wonderful weekend getaway" Fabulous views and lots to see nearby. It got very cold but the space heaters worked well. The owner was always very prompt in answering questions.



"Amazing ocean view and great location!" We recently stayed at On The Waterfront and it lived up to all the past reviews. The home is spacious with multiple living areas. We spent most of our time on the deck given the spectacular ocean views. We loved walking to the local beaches and appreciated all of Jane’s excellent food and coffee recommendations. The home has everything you need for a relaxing stay with quirky retro furnishings. We hope to return again soon!



Jane’s property is a great location for a quick getaway by the beach. Amazing views with great sounds from the ocean and wildlife. Jane gave excellent recommendations for entertainment and very helpful and detailed directions. Was a very nice and well needed break.



"We enjoyed our stay" A well equipped house in a lovely location



"I would highly recommend a relaxing stay at On the Waterfront..quiet with stunning views." We were lucky to have amazing weather to appreciate all the house had to offer. On the Waterfront is a very comfortable property with space that we didn't even use. Perfect for a family with a separate eating and living area for older children. As 5 separate adults the facilities in the house still ticked all the boxes. I'd really recommend making use of this destination out of season as well as in the predictable summer holidays. There is so much to do apart from swimming and the villages along Lawrence Hargreave Drive are certainly much less busy. We had a really special time with coffees on the deck in the morning in the sun as well as drinks in the evening with the spectacular view looking north up the coast. The direct access to the beach is a little precarious but so nice to know that it is possible. The owner of the property was immediately responsive to any queries we had which always makes for a positive experience. I would highly recommend a relaxing stay at On the Waterfront to those who haven't already been.
