The same has to be said for this property. It surpassed our expectations on every level. The house itself is in a brilliant location, right by the beach and just a stones throw from two lovely piers and some great restaurants. When you walk in you have everything you need and more, amazing living area and kitchen (extremely well fitted out with all the utensils you need), beautiful bedrooms and a top notch pool and lounging area. In addition to that Chris could not have been more helpful before and during our stay in terms of supplying us with helpful information and/or replying to any questions. It was my wife and I along with our two kids and for an extremely memorable family holiday this was unbeatable.
