Everything has been thought of to make your stay as easy and comfortable as possible. We loved it! Thank you Nicole !

Everything was well appointed inside & out. Perfect swimming pool for young children due to the wide shallow stepped area. Lovely quiet location, but still easy to access the whole Cap area. We would certainly stay again.
