    No communication whatsoever when we arrived in regards to which bach was actually ours. Very old building which I didn't mind too much but some might, very dusty definitely not the cleanest. Place was unkept and needed some serious touching up. lights didn't work, bbq didn't work, list goes on and on. Pool was dirty too sadly. Only positive is that it's only a 5 min drive from the beach and shops. Definitely not worth the price

    The property on the outside is in a statement needs maintenance and just a good clean and dust staining on gum must. The toilet floor is in bad need of replacement as you are wonder what is going to crawl out from caps. There was a mouse in the hot water cupboard which obviously came through the holes in the floor. The main double bed is like to singles hav been joined together. So if you don't mind a few cobwebs plenty of dust an many of items in the place of but sticky, it's the place for you.

    Gorgeous spot and lovely cottage - don't forget to take a bathmat when you stay there. Shame the pool was not available which was a major reason for booking and we weren't told this until just before we were due there - also no financial consideration for this.
