  • Bach was a great little room and pretty much as advertised, but...

    Bach was a great little room and pretty much as advertised, but with a few little niggles: Very close to owner's house; washing machine, pool table and spa were use of owner's facilities; no private outdoor area. However, wifi coverage was great and the bach was sufficient and comfortable.

  • This getaway suited us very well

    This getaway suited us very well. We are used to the hectic lifestyle of metropolitan life so to stay at this cottage was relaxing and rejuvenating for us and just what we needed. Had all the basics we needed. Friendly hosts who let us have our privacy. We really enjoyed our stay!
