Wake to the sounds of the changing tides in this private absolute beachfront apartment. Brand new interior with designer kitchen , shaded deck and an unimaginably perfect view. The sea is just metres from your door . Located in a small beachside community, a sandy beach and palm tree lined lagoon is accessible only to you and those who live here.The fishing is great for those who love to eat their own fresh catch, and when the conditions are just right the surf is right outside your door.

The space

The location of TIDE overlooking the bay is a dream come true. As the tides change the gentle sounds of the sea will surround you with a feeling of tranquillity.
As the tide retreats it reveals the rock pools and a private sandy beach just a few steps from your balcony and your very own secluded place to bathe.
My granddaughter calls it the mermaid pool.

Guest access

A fully equipped kitchen, free wifi and TV and Netflix, linen and towels along with a range of teas and fresh coffee is provided.
We also have a small store of delicious meal ingredients and refreshments available for purchase if you need additional supplies.

Other things to note

Sometimes dolphins pop into view , stars fill the sky and the sound of kiwi nearby intrude on the silence of the night.We hope these don't put you off staying!

An immaculate upstairs flat with amazing views. Really comfy bed with quality bedding. Loved the "pantry shop" -great idea. Steep access but worth it when we got there. Wished we could have stayed longer.

Response from Annette:
Thanks Val I am glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for the advice, I had added in a little about the access but clearly need to emphasise this more. I agree about the garden and stairs, this is still a work in progress and we are about to renovate the rest of the place as soon as we complete a rebuild of the antiquated underground waste system which we are moving away from the seafront. As you can imagine this will require considerable earthworks requiring a complete redesign of the gardens etc. Looking forward to getting this completed. Kind regards Annette

Lovely property, view is sensational. Photos don't do it justice. Master bed is really comfy, everything is modern, very clean and comfortable. Don't take too much gear, its a steep walk down to the home. Enjoy at least a few days, much to explore in the area.

What a location! If you're looking for some serious rest and relaxation this is for you. A good 30mins away from the local shops etc, so plan well because once you're there you won't want to leave. Thanks Annette for all of your hospitality. Wonderful stay

The host canceled this reservation 3 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Annette User Profile
Response from Annette:
I would have loved to have Sarah stay and I hated to do this but the request arrived within a minute of another reservation being accepted for the same (URL HIDDEN) was really unavoidable and we would never cancel a booking we had accepted except in an emergency. Have had my own bookings cancelled with no explanation so knew the importance of immediately responded to advise of the first booking.

TIDE is really in an amazing location that looks just like in the photos. The interior decorating is very charming and makes the place feel unique and special. Everything we needed was there and the pantry system was a very thoughtful offer on the part of the host. Recently remodeled, TIDE was like new and immaculately clean. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen well-stocked with all the tools needed to whip up a feast. The host was very easy to deal with and made us feel very welcome.
