  • Fantastic, large bach

    Fantastic, large bach. Has everything you need, want and more! Comfortable beds, large fully fenced grassy yard. Nice views of the water, super quiet area, and close to some gorgeous beaches and walks. Owner was absolutely lovely and very helpful, and generously allowed us to bring our dog with us. Would love to stay again. Hope to visit this region again, just beautiful!

  • Property has all the essentials

    Property has all the essentials. It is nice and cosy, big section and location. We had a misunderstanding, and I thought events were allowed. We had to leave the property. Besides that I did agree with there decisions and sent an apology also stating I wouldnt be trying to seek a refund as I thought there decision was fair, but I have had no reply from them. A bit disappointed as I would of hoped to settle it maturely and on good terms. This property is truly amazing and has all the essentials.

  • The property had everything we needed and was in a great location

    The property had everything we needed and was in a great location. There was a large fenced garden that both the child and the dog enjoyed playing in. It is a lovely homely home that was relaxing, convenient and family friendly.
