What a gem this house is. Beautiful view and has everything you could need in a home away from home. I loved all the outside areas where you could sit in sun or shade any time of day. Really nice to have so many plants around. The goodies on arrival were much appreciated. Would definitely recommend.

Our family had a lovely 2 day stay in this very beautiful, tidy and well appointed holiday home. There was something for everyone to enjoy, whether it was the well stocked kitchen, the many indoor and outdoor games or the multiple kayaks. Great location, right across the road from the beach and if you can’t be bothered going across the road, you can always enjoy the view from the comfort of the deck and many outdoor furniture options. Everyone had a wonderful time.

Wow what an impressive holiday home with spectacular sea views! We had such a fun & relaxing time in this lovely holiday house. The house is amazing and is so well organised & has everything you need plus more! We loved the special treats that were there on our arrival. Our kids loved the kayaks & the outdoor & indoor games! It was fantastic to just go across the road & go for a swim. We would highly recommend this holiday house & will be back again to enjoy paradise!
