Property conditions & facilities

5/5 Excellent

Traveled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This property is absolutely amazing. We stayed in a 2-bedroom cottage, which included a full kitchen and a private geothermal hot tub. Staff was superb. Breakfast, which is included, was excellent. Dinner, at an additional cost, was fantastic and some of the best meals we have ever had on vacation. I can not say enough good things about this property. Be advised that the nearest grocery store is around 20 minutes and closest town is 30-40 min. We found this property to be the perfect place to base our southern coast exploration. If you are looking for a place in this region, I highly recommend Torfhus Retreat. We will definitely be back to this special property.
