First class bungalow & good location

5 of 5
The bungalow was well fitted out, very comfortable and modern. All the mod cons and easy access / parking. Sara and Matthew were very accommodating giving helpful tips for tourism and dining. The location could not be bettered, convenient for all the tourist spots and the important towns / cities. Even though the weather was variable we still managed to sit on the balcony ! We would highly recommend it for families and couples.
