I have stayed in this beautiful home twice now and booked again for this summer
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 sunroom are beautiful especially the sunsets! Highly recommend!
I’m heartbroken at leaving and going back home
thanks a million for letting us stay in your home for the last few weeks. We have had a fabulous time and I’m heartbroken at leaving and going back home. Will be in touch again to see if you will have us back! All the best Eileen
