  • The photographs on the website do not do this house justice

    The photographs on the website do not do this house justice. It's a beautiful home, clean, well kept and stocked with things that make the stay pleasant and enjoyable. This includes the collection of books, toys for different age groups, a folder with local takeaways etc [although I realised some of them were not up to date]. It's also at a wonderful location, and the view from the outdoor deck, kitchen and dining area meant that the family preferred to spend time together. Denise had set out a baby cot for us, which was put to use almost immediately after our arrival. We learnt that the chromecast might need restarting, if it's not easily detected at first. We are also very thankful for Denise's prompt email responses, which were always appropriate and reassuring. Lastly, we stayed for less than a week, during the peak Dec-Jan season. Several other home owners refused to let us hire their accomodation for less than seven days. A couple even cancelled our booking with vague reasons. De

    An extremely well equipped, comfortable house, near to the centre of town. Great views over the lake to the volcanoes beyond. Nice garden for the children to play in and even toys in the cupboard! Can't think of anything we needed which wasn't there.
