Great Property

5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. The place is within walking distance to the beach and the shops weren't too far away. It was very clean and we took one of the kayak's located in the shed down to the beach which was awesome. The house was very big and family friendly, would definitely recommend to big groups or families. The only downside was the double bed downstairs as it was not comfy to sleep on at all so we ended up using the fold out bed from the couches which was comfier. Other than that would recommend.
