Loved the little details around the studio and the facitlities are great, gave the place a homely feel. Owners are lovely and very quick response to any questions. 10/10

The house is decorated to a very high standard and equipped with everything we could possibly need. The garden was lovely with lots of quiet corners. Lots of parking space and within easy reach of Carmel and the coast.
