5/5 Excellent

Lovely location
Having a fisherman husband, having water across the road was awesome

5/5 Excellent

Our first holiday with our dog.
We found a clean spacious and well equiped house. The house is conveniently located next to the river and near the town with the added bonus of a large carport which was appreciated while packing our car in the pouring rain. We chose this property solely because it was pet friendly but it offered everything we required.
