There were 8 adults but we found we had plenty of room and the sleeping arrangements worked perfectly for us. The size of the main lounge is amazing, with the added bonus of a smaller lounge if required. Although the kitchen is quite small everything we needed was provided and we managed to cook Christmas dinner with no problems. The area is beautiful with plenty of walks and the village is very pretty. The 2 pubs are friendly and serve good food and beer and the shop is perfect for groceries etc. (The pasties were gorgeous!) All in all a fabulous place for a family holiday.

Family friendly and pet friendly ( nice touch ) The layout is great and the ensuite bathrooms makes a great addition. The owner was very helpful with the assisting us with amenities and local restaurants etc. The beach walks and exploring is a must especially as this is only a stones throw away from th property. MIND THE TIDE. We had a great time together as a family and will recommend this property to all our friends for sure :) Thanks Ohana House

Cava and chocolate on arrival was a nice touch. All the communication with the owner was very professional and friendly. We were concerned that the security measures for the flat might get annoying but is actually very straight forward once you had gone through it once. Very happy with the rental would happily recommend for couples.
