Lovely location and bach. Would be well served by having a commercial cleaner after each set of guests. Then current guests are not at the whim of the previous guests, with cleaning properly done.... or not! I'd want to go there very often if I knew that it would be spotlessly clean. And then I would recommend it highly to others.
Great location for an easy walk to town, beautiful water views. Only thing was on the weekends you can hear the music from one of the bars quite loudly but it wasn’t too late and we were able to sleep through it. The driveway was very steep, hard with a pram.
