Great space and location

  • 5 of 5

House is spacious and has all you need- we were two families with 5 kids between us. The location is perfect - beautiful sandy beaches just minutes from the the house and the main beaches of Scarista, Luskentyre etc only 5 -10 mins drive. Would definitely recommend this big house for large families/ groups of friends and the area around is absolutely perfect.
