An excellent stay

A very well-presented house with beautiful views over the Ocean. We were sorry to only be able to stay 1 night. Would definitely recommend.

Beautiful place, comfortable and tidy.

We enjoyed our stay, kids loved the fact that the beach was just a stroll away. The house is perfect for a family and had everything needed to make our stay most comfortable. Margeret was an amazing host.
