We had a wonderful time, the house was perfect for us. We tried out the paddle boards and kayak and loved it. There was loads of room in the garage for our 2 kayaks as well.. The house had everything we needed and was a great base to explore from or to just relax in and watch the sea and amazing sunsets.
Great location for a small family with the beach just over the road. Lovely views of the sea from the front balcony and lovely views of countryside and hills from the rear of the house. We had lots of fun playing with the kayaks and paddle boards. The interior of the house was as described in the listing.
This is a great property! Our family with 3 children stayed and felt it was a home away from home. Very clean and tidy, had everything you would need for a holiday. On top of that you have the beach accross the road, great sea views from house, shop and cafe, bars just down road. Wish we stayed longer!
