What they say

I have stayed in this beautiful home twice now and booked again for this summer. It has everything you need, it is so comfortable and suits us as we have 3 children and they love the fact toys and beach things are left to use. The house layout is brilliant with lots of storage. A separate utility is great as you don't have the noise of the machines in the open plan living/kitchen area. The kids love the triple bunk room, it becomes their den as they have their own TV and video/dvd player with loads of the old classics that they haven't seen! It is a perfect location for us as we can walk to the beach....and what a beach absolutely gorgeous! And the views from the sun room are beautiful especially the sunsets! Highly recommend!
