  • My whole family had a wonderful stay at the house

    My whole family had a wonderful stay at the house. It's a beautiful and tranquil place with everything needed for a family with kids. We enjoyed the fantastic harbour view especially while having breakfast. The neighbours who helps look after the house were very welcoming and friendly. We would love to come back to stay next time.
