                                Great place to stay,

                                The property is deceptively large, spread over three floors, well maintained and if you see the sun the patio is ideal for an evening meal. Charmaine was really helpful even booking a local hairdresser for the girls who were attending a local wedding I would recommend this property and will stay there again

                                Lovely house in beautiful location

                                5 of 5
                                We had a wonderful holiday, the house was comfortable and spacious and suited our party of four adults and three children. We enjoyed the large garden and scenery and had several breakfasts on the balcony looking onto the sea. The availability of four kayaks was an unexpected thrill for us all. The children especially enjoyed the cinema room and the selection of DVD's. All in all, together with good weather, a thoroughly memorable holiday. Thank you for your kindness and consideration when we were booking our stay.
