Cosy Couple Hideaway or Family Retreat

 The property was very cosy, clean and a perfect place for a summer getaway. My friends and I enjoyed the house, especially the kitchen as it had all the essentials for cooking. Also, the table outside was great! We had all of our meals there. I highly recommend this place! :)))
