Focsle Down Under offers as perfect situation as you could choose to find. I stayed for a week with my four children and the beach, quite literally not a stones throw away, provided unlimited entertainment for us all. Who could want for more than to watch the changing tide during the day and listen to the wave lap the shore each night? A wonderfully comfortable and spacious property gives this property an A*!
