Great location and lovely accommodation.

  • 5 of 5

This property was the ideal size for our family with a modern feel and plenty of space (has a second living space which is great with kids!) Great location - very short drive to the shops (or walk if the weather is nice). Would not hesitate to rebook.

Pet friendly, So close to the beach with designer decor and fabulous art !

  • 5 of 5

We will be back, this property is close to the beach and our little dog loved it. A wonderful home that is so clean and decor and art that is amazing. The owner was a pleasure to deal with and this was a last minute mid week get-away that we really needed - can't wait to stay there again it's got everything you need!
