The house is indeed very nicely decorated and amazing for kids, our daughter loved the details and toys on her bedroom and they added a cot for our little son on our bedroom. the space inside is really nice, but also on the outside, loads of space and things to do with the kids inside the complex while we get something ready to go out. Dealing with the owner was really easy and very quick replies. Would definitely recommend this place.

What's not to like?! Would recommend changing one of the double rooms into a twin/double split but our girls shared OK. Owner Brian really friendly and helpful - had no problem driving over with spare keys when our teenagers managed to break one!
