  • Great location and lovely local town - Russell

    Great location and lovely local town - Russell. A quirky property right on the water. The only minus points are the limited headroom in the sleeping area and storage space for clothes.

    This is an absolutely magical place - a fantastic romantic getaway with a wonderful view of the sea right in front of your window. It's our 2nd time staying here and we'll definitely be back. Don is also a delight to deal with.
