Chris and Ria were great hosts and looked after us if we needed anything - only a phone call away! The outside area to sit and soak up the sun was ideal - loved the hammock! Shops were only a short stroll away and a fishmonger too. Will definitely return very soon. Would highly recommend it - there is everything you need to have a enjoyable time. A gem!

There were six of us in total (3 couples) and there was plenty of space inside and out. The place was very clean and had a modern look with open plan kitchen / dining area. Had beers and soft drinks in the fridge on arrival which I thought was a nice touch. Spent most evenings sitting outside in the BBQ area having our meals. Waking up to the amazing sunrise was the highlight. Oh and the views of the end of the runway was also a bonus watching the planes fly in and out. Ten minute drive into the port or half hour walk.
