  • This was a lovely place to stay

    This was a lovely place to stay. I can tell a lot of thought has gone in to making it as comfortable as possible and everything you need is there. It is private and has a great view and was lovely and clean. I highly recommend this property! The only minor thing to keep in mind is that the internet signal isn't super strong.
