Our host Lisa was easy to deal with and professional, polite. We arrived early hours of the morning (0300) but Lisa had arranged for family to get access to the accommodation and stock the fridge with essentials, make up the beds etc which was a huge help. Lisa also left a bottle of wine for us which was a nice touch! The accommodation was a good size, 3 bedrooms, one of which could sleep four children so we were more than comfortable. Two living rooms provided space for adults and kids to relax and there was a good selection of DVDs, games and access to Wi-Fi. The accommodation is 5 minutes from the high street and the sea fronts/local beaches which was really handy and meant we dint need to rely on a car. The only negative point was the fact the barbecue hadn't been cleaned prior to our arrival so we avoided using it; this wasn't a major issue and we informed Lisa as soon as we noticed it. All in all we had a great holiday visiting family in Inverloch; the property is great for a family although I would say it is expensive in comparison to other properties in the area, especially off peak, when we took our vacation. I would recommend the property and would consider staying there again, subject to affordability. Best Regards, Mr and Mrs A Hodgson
