My husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary with a stay at Kims last night. We absolutely loved our Longbeach cabin, the location and room were great(except maybe for sticking sliding doors, which may have been caused by the wet weather). We managed a lovely long walk along the beach before the heavens opened up. We were very much...

It has been over a year since I last stayed. Still the same "beachside " vibe. Room was spotless and well fitted out. Bed was very comfy. The food has improved out of sight. A big thumbs up for the Chef ! Friendly staff always with a smile. Nice and relaxing.

We have just returned from a delightful two night three day stay at Kims. It really felt like a week. Even though we planned to do many local activities, we just relaxed, paddled in the water and walked along the beautiful beaches. These walks were interspersed with wonderful locally sourced food and sitting and looking at the water and people's...

I've been hearing good things about this place for ages so decided it was time to find out for myself. Although some might say it's quite expensive when you add up the accommodation,location,meals and service it all is well worth the money.
