We have just returned home from a fantastic week away at la catalpa. The photos do not do the property justice. The place was spotless clean and the beds were comfy- a rare thing to find. Plenty of space for our four families to stay. Table tennis, big pool, tennis court and plenty of shade should you need it- equipment is provided. We had small children with us and there was a gate to the pool, gate to the sloped landscaped garden at the back and gates to the property so I was assured they were safe. For us it was nice to travel down to the busy beaches and then drive 5 minutes back to the quiet house. Plenty of supermarkets within a 2 minute drive Or You can walk to Aldi. We loved our stay.
