There is also a separate room for washing, drying and ironing the laundry which is a very welcome option if you have kids. The place is isolated and nicely lit so that you can have fun outside also in the evening. We loved almost everything about this place except for a few things: * The house (floor) was not cleaned * The towels had stains and hair on them * The windows didn't have nets. Only one window had it, and the problem is that there are a lot of insects (flies and wasps) * The bbq didn't have appropriate tools (i.e. for cleaning and handling the grid)

Everything provided that you need fir a comfortable stay. Great cooking facilities and very comfy beds. Amazing pool!! We barbecued a lot and ate out under starry skies on the splendid terrace. Kim and Brian are perfect hosts. Friendly , kind and incredibly helpful! Thank you for the very welcome bottle of fizz in the fridge too! Highly recommended! We will be back!!
