Wonderful holiday in fantastic accomodation!

4 of 5
This is a great property, always very enjoyable to stay here. It's in great condition with a few recent updates since our last visit. We are a family of 4, 2 adults and 2 small children. It has plenty space for all of us and a great garden for running about. Really close to town centre. Graham is a super host. Good clear communication and property is clean and tidy. What more could you ask for?!

5 of 5
We LOVED your place!!!!!! Gerardine, the pictures we saw on "Homeaway" did not do your lovely apartment justice!! It was even more beautiful in person! It was extremely clean, spacious but cozy at the same time, with all of the comforts of home. There was nothing that we needed that we couldn't find - it was the perfect place to sta on a vacation far from home. And did I mention the location??!!! Perfect short walk to many restaurants, shopping, pubs, the marina and public transportion. Absolutely lovely. Thank you for sharing your awesome place with us!! Tina Bongo
