Beds were very comfortable and the place is beautifully furnished. Communication was also excellent. Would love to stay again

Organising the booking with Chris was straight forward followed with the helpful meet and greet with Alex. When we pulled up to the property, the house looks like a small cottage, very well presented and welcoming. Inside the house is very homely with beautiful interior and very well equipped for your needs. We were a bit concerned after reading a negative review on here so close to our booking, the only concern that we identify was a very small number of curtains had been scorched in the sun. Did that affect our stay in this beautiful property? Not at all. This is by far the best property we have stayed in over the past 7 years and will be returning next year. We as a family had so much fun in the pool and there are lots to see and do in the surrounding area. Alex's local knowledge was helpful as she suggested a few attractions age specific for our children. Overall we are delighted to have found a great place to enjoy some family time. Thank you Chris and Alex
