Janet who look after property very helpful. We also arranged airport transfer and car hire with Janet and Norman that was cheap and great. It would be an idea for anybody like us who arrive really late at night to have the ability of a welcome pack as there are items that would have been great to have at property on arrival. We had a wonderful time great weather and would come back for sure.
