A lovely seaview from the bedrooms and only a short walk down the cliff path to the beach to some excellent eaterys. The property was immaculate upon our arrival, a useful welcome basket was very much appreciated. The excellent facilities made our holiday perfect. It was like home from home with blenders, a slow cooker and a BBQ, the fact that picnic plates and plastic cups were provided was an added bonus and they made days out so much easier. The owners obviously take great care of the property and do everything to make their guests happy and comfortable. The island caterers for visitors of every age ( we had three generations of our family) and I would certainly, unreservedly, recommend a visit and a stay.

The home was very clean and because we wanted to cook all meals we found the kitchen to be very well equipped! We even baked!!! We had read a few comments about the shower being quite hard spraying but my family loved it especially after a long day of activities. We are definitely considering a longer stay. We were also pleased that the owner was easily accessible when we needed to clarify anything just a phone call away.
