The house was spacious, with plenty of bedrooms and living space. The outdoor space was also fabulous with a refreshing pool, gas barbecue and plenty of furniture. Everything we needed for our stay was provided. I would highly recommend this property and wouldn't hesitate to return if we visited Holloway's Beach again.
