Everything we needed was provided and Annie was the perfect host, kind and attentive whilst respecting our privacy, full of helpful advice and even made us a delicious cake! We would most definitely consider re-visiting. The area is peaceful and beautiful, with many lovely walks and interesting places to visit.

                                                                                                      A gem. Tucked away in a quiet residential area very near to beach. In fact it took a while to find it! Plenty of space...good kitchen/diner. Steps inside flat leading to bedrooms quite steep and anyone with mobility problems may struggle. It is called a flat but it is second and third storey of large building so on entry you have steps to climb to get to front door and then it is like being in a house. Highly recommended ... we visited as a couple but lots of room for family as 2 bedrooms one with bunks.
