The view from the sitting room over the harbour and out to sea is truly spectacular. Watching the boats come in and out was pure pleasure. It's so light and airy, and the windows are so big, that we didn't miss having an outdoor space. All the rooms felt much larger than they looked on the listing. Everything was in good order, clean and tasteful. The kitchen was well enough equipped for simple cooking. Good shower. Master bed wonderfully big and comfortable. You're seconds away from everything you could need in the town. We took our drinks down and sat on the harbour wall every evening ... We hired electric bikes and explored the island every day, parking them overnight back at the hire shop for safety. Obviously, being so central, this isn't the right place if you're looking for 100pct tranquillity - you are right in the middle of things. This worked for us, but might not for everybody. Communication was excellent with the owner, and the lady based on the island who manages the property was exceptionally warm and helpful.

The house is spacious and well equipped, with a sunny garden back and front. It's very close (walking distance if you like) to delightful sandy coves for safe swimming, snorkelling etc. The island as a whole is full of interest and charm, and all easily accessible.
