We’ve spent a week here on 3 separate occasions in the last 10 years and intend to do it again. Unbeatable house and location if you want to just relax, watch the people and the boats, read a book, see georgeous sunsets, wind down in sleepy, but fully provided Russell. Friends we’ve brought with us on each occasion were equally enamoured of the house and the town.
Just loved this holiday home. Comfortable and clean the views from each room were amazing! We loved the kayaks and look forward to returning in the future. The bottom latch on the door facing the sea is missing so although we could lock the door securely, there was a bit of a gap where cold air came in on the night we had a storm (just a minor thing) We really loved this place. (thanks for sharing it)
Stayed here the weekend of 13, 14 and 15th May for a special family occasion. Beyond expectations!! Fantastic views, short stroll to the shops and all flat for the less agile people. Very compact, very clean and tidy and had everything one could want for a holiday. Beds were very comfortable and again, all with fab views once you open your curtains!! Great to have so much parking as well. One thing in particular we liked were the comfortable outdoor living chairs. Because the weather was fabulous we spent a lot of time watching the world go by in our own little world. Boat ramp close by, loved the birds singing away around the place. Just heavenly, I'm sure we will be back. Hassle free communication with the owner which was as added bonus. No hidden costs or surprises, what we expected was more then met!!!
