  • WOW

    WOW. I have stayed here before in the summer and the large bifold doors open on to the deck it was gorgeous.This time round was winter and the floors were heated which made the whole house cozy and warm.Its only 5min walk to the centre of town, 1min walk to the local shop. Wouldn't stay anywhere else.

  • Very well located and I would recommend it to anyone

    Very well located and I would recommend it to anyone. It is an exceptionally warm, sunny, clean and modern house. Access is on the main street, in walking distance to all the local attractions/scenic walks and shops. They supplied really comfortable beds, bedding and pillows. Sheets and towels changed and unit cleaned weekly. Has everything you need and it really felt like home.

  • Fantastic central location

    Fantastic central location. Very sunny, modern house. Only reason we aren't rating this a 10, is that there are no security stays on the upstairs windows which are quite low down. That caused a little bit of stress with our 3 year old gymnist, who has no fear! Otherwise, we had an amazing week. Thank you!
