We loved the house, it was just what we wished for. Very clean and well maintained. It had all the facilities needed, the kitchen had all the utensils required for our stay. Having a dishwasher a large fridge with a freezer and washing machine and tumble dryer were perfect. We spent many evenings on the deck eating our Bbq in the sunshine. The location was perfect, very central for touring, nothing was too far away. We are now saving for next year!
