Wir haben 2 Wochen in dem Häuschen gewohnt und haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Vor allem der sehr freundliche Empfang durch Denise und auch die stets gute Unterstützung von Frau Hülstrunk bei allen Fragen im Vorfeld der Reise empfanden wir als sehr angenehm. Die Landschaft ist traumhaft und auch in der Nähe des Häuschens gibt es viele schöne Wanderwege und viel zu entdecken. Nach einigem Suchen, haben wir auch den Pfad zum Meer gefunden. Im Haus haben wir alles Notwendige vorgefunden und es war sauber und gepflegt. Allerdings empfiehlt es sich, den Kamin zu nutzen, da es bei schlechtem Wetter etwas feucht werden kann. Insgesamt aber ein sehr schönes Ferienerlebnis und Natur pur.
