Location is perfect near the old village and esplanade and Sue has it fully equipped with easy instructions on arrival/departure; there was even a small carton of milk in the fridge along with tea and biscuits and other welcoming stuff. The wifi was very fast for mainland let alone being on the island. I was thoroughly impressed and pleased with everything as there wasn't much details left unattended; Will definitely repeat if available next time and would give more stars if I could. Many thanks and much appreciated.
