Perfect and peaceful location for a getaway with friends

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with a group of 6 friends, the house was spacious, clean and easy to find based on the directions provided. it was useful to know upront that we wont be able to find it using satnav so the directions provided by owner were clear and helpful. Its located in such a peaceful place and the views from the bedroom were amazing on a clear sunny day.

We had a problem with the light in one of the bathrooms which the owner fixed promptly! thank you for that. No phone signals in this part of vilage so the wifi connection was very useful.

If you are there with a large group its good to note that one bathroom has a shower and the other a bathtub, I didn't pay attention while booking, it's wasnt a problem but just slowed things down when most of us wanted a quick shower and be out. If possible, perhaps handy to have a curtin/ screen around the bath tub.
