The house was well-maintained and we had plenty of room for our 12 guests. Short 10 minutes' drive to the beach and walking distance to several restaurants, this is a great location for vacationing with family and friends.

Sadly not the right time of year to use the pool, but lovely walks. We had a very warm welcome from our hosts Jane and Graham who made our stay so enjoyable. Really recommend.
