The photos on the site don't do it justice at all! The beach was by my doorstep and as a winter swimmer I was delighted to have a private beach ten paces away. The house was comfortable and well thought out. I can't think of anything to fault here. I could have spent my entire holiday looking out the window.

The house is very spacious and clean with spectacular views. The owner was very helpful and friendly The condition of the sofa in the sitting room is poor and some windows ( sitting room and master bedroom) have problems with condensation inbetween the double glazing which means a loss of the beautiful view. An extra large towel per person would be very welcome because the house has two bubble baths. Overall a great holiday home !
