  • Wonderful beach house, clean, tidy and a good size

    Wonderful beach house, clean, tidy and a good size. Very comfortable beds and great that living is downstairs and bedrooms upstairs. Kids loved being so close to the sea - just a few steps from the deck. We loved our stay at The Greenie. Would highly recommend to others.

    Fantastic location, would definitely stay again and explore. Everything we needed for a group of 7 for our short stay. Wish we had time to use the kayaks.
