A perfect little cottage for our stay. Well equipped and very comfortable with a lovely private deck off the lounge. Great hosts who made us feel very welcome. We would definitely recommend and we are keen to return to do more of the cycling in the area. Thank you
Response from Owner
It was a pleasure to have you here and you will be most welcome back anytime ! Thank you.
Lovely, beautifully planned accomodation, tranquil views, well equipped kitchen with everything one might need to do actual cooking (which we did). Barbara and Glenda are very kind and knowledgeable hosts who made our family feel welcome. They went above and beyond, lent us a bodyboard (because we forgot ours), gave tips regarding restaurants to eat at, even printed out a map with a useful route for the places we wanted to visit. We loved everything about our visit and will definitely be back.
