We stayed with our two children (7 & 11) and two dogs for a long weekend. Genie house is so comfortable and well equiped. We had a such a lovely time just relaxing, and exploring the local area. There is a great shop across the road. The dogs enjoyed their holiday and loved exploring the garden.

Beuatiful house and garden

We loved our stay in this beautifully presented house, cool on a summer day, with a great enclosed tropical garden for our 2 dogs. Convenient location, walking distance to town. We would definately stay again and highly recommend.
