Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent house that suits family groups at a great location close to the beach. It was very clean, and a lot of thought had gone into furnishings and the small touches. The views of the coast were lovely and the outdoor areas spacious and also well furnished.

Special family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Even though the weather wasn't too kind to us during our stay, we had the most special and amazing family time here. Beautiful touches add to this lovely home. Everything you need and more. John has thought of everything to make your stay relaxing and care free. I love that there are two kitchens, two living areas, two bathrooms and plenty of room. John has made it a very family oriented holiday home, with games, books, DVDs and more for the kiddies. There is a beautiful and very large deck upstairs too for entertaining. The beach is so close too and there is ample undercover parking. We had the best time and will most definitely be back.
