Loved our stay

Spotless and cosy. Great location and a warm welcome from Yvonne, the host. Loved the home made bread which was still warm on arrival.

Great spot for two. Very glad we chose this accommodation and would book it again in the future.

Perfect Weekend Retreat

  • 5 of 5

With a light and breezy atmosphere, great location and pristine amenities this cosy little hideaway is perfect or either a short or long stay. We adored sipping wine by the pool before a quick refreshing dip, or popping across the road to the beautiful beach. Hosts were friendly, helpful and accommodating and the experience offers excellent value-for-money. We will be back.

We stayed for 2 nights in Mid November. Beautifully furnished, immaculate and a delight to come back to each day. We appreciated the peacefulness for sleeping, the privacy and being opposite the beach for our morning walks. A shame we didn't get to use the pool, for it looked very inviting. Thank you Yvonne, for all your hard work and also for the homemade bread that we enjoyed for breakfast each morning. We look forward to visiting again some time for a longer holiday.
