  • Central location just up the hill from the waterfront

    Central location just up the hill from the waterfront. A warm comfortable house with a large deck and views over the bay.

  • The location and views were stunning

    The location and views were stunning. However, the property looks a bit tired and could do with some tender loving care. The wardrobe in the main bedroom was full of old bits and pieces so if you had to hang items there was nowhere to do so. Also toothbrush and hairbrush and other personal items were in the bathroom cabinet. Positively the house was comfy to relax in. Carpets could do with a clean especially that in master bedroom ensuit.

  • It is a lovely Villa Style house with high ceilings, very clean...

    It is a lovely Villa Style house with high ceilings, very clean and contains everything needed for a comfortable stay. the only negative I think is the 3rd bedroom which is by the front door and just closed off by a curtain. I would probably recommend for 4 people to enjoy in comfort. views over the bay are lovely and very handy to the centre of town, you can walk everywhere. good off street parking suitbale for boat.

    We loved the place although it's an older style house it's tidy , has brilliant views ! We couldn't work the sky remote because the batteries were obviously flat and someone has taken the ones from DVD remote too, so we made a trip down to the four sq to get some batteries for both remotes !!! We had a lovely weekend staying & walked everywhere , will definitely be back .
