  • The place was compact & modern, a bit small for our family...

    The place was compact & modern, a bit small for our family of 4, but it was OK. Only issue was the wireless broadband, we had trouble, Tarshia did get it fixed, but its expensive compared with home or mobile, (no 3G on vodafone) the service provider in July 2016 was, if having broadband is important to you, email Tarshia for their rates. The svce in July 16 was hard to use. Zappie was unsympathetic when data just disappeared. Turn off your wifi between uses to stop data usage.

    The house was little smaller than we expected, but was modern and had everything we need. Had heater everywhere, felt warm throughout our stay. Tarshia was very friendly and flexible with our dates. Kids loved playing with spot!! Love the atmosphere, very calm and quiet. Affordable family home having linen and cleaning included. Thank you for the wonderful stay, we would definitely come back again!

    It felt like we had found the jewel in the crown staying here, such awesome accommodation very clean and tidy and every comfortable for the 7 of us. Shame it rained as we couldn't use the outside deck but plenty of room for us inside. The location was perfect for our needs and was a lovely haven to come back to after a long day.
