Fantastic Home and location.

5 of 5
What a wonderful home. So well maintained and furnished beautifully. The photos don't do it justice! Everything there that you could need, great pool, plenty of sun beds and a BBQ. The contact between Chris and myself was excellent, speedy responses to all my emails. Loved the house so much we extended our stay whilst there! Chris accommodated this with absolutely no fuss whatsoever. Loved the location, within driving distance to shops, beaches and restaurants. Would love to return at some point....fingers crossed its available! Thanks Chris
