 A modern home with great harbour views & gr8 vibe

 Fantastic spot - the view is incredible, the house is very spacious, comfortable and nicely appointed. The roof top terrace is a real treat. We wish we could have stayed longer! Would definitely stay again. 

Holiday by the Sea, absolute waterfront bach

 This house was everything we wanted in a bach. Clean, charming, comfortable, well stocked, roomy and affordable. And it had great views. Chris and Yann were wonderful hosts.

Excellent Location with Harbour Views in Wallis

 Close to town and easy walking distance of most things. An excellent house for our large group. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Surprised and grateful for the provision and linen. Good value for money. Thank you. 

Holiday by the Sea, absolute waterfront bach

 Easy place to be, exciting to be influenced by the tides with your comings and going. We came last year for a family get together and enjoyed it so much that everyone wanted to go back to the same place. The kayaks were well used and enjoyed. A 2nd bathroom would not go amiss for a big family group, but it all worked well for us.
