4/5 Good

It was nice family holiday
There was every I needed, nice and clean bed, bathroom, kitchen, bbq area, internet for kids. While my family were there we felt really comfortable.

4/5 Good

Enjoyed our stay, was close to the water and not far from local beaches and shops. Communication with property owner was excellent.

5/5 Excellent

Great pet-friendly house
The property was perfect for the four humans and two dogs that stayed there. Big backyard for the dogs to run around, comfortable beds for a good nights sleep and a short drive to dog friendly beaches. The air con was a bit noisy and is only in the living room area but it didn’t dampen our stay.
