Amazing! A fab holiday house - great for adults and children! Lovely views, great hot tub.

Mr Malcolm O,

The property is absolutely perfect! All of the rooms are finished to the highest standard and are just beautiful. Our parties ages were from 15-53 and it was loved by all. The view from the deck was gorgeous and the hot tub was a real treat. Fabulous holiday property, highly recommended.

Thank you for organising the gorgeous weather for our stay at this stunning house! What a way to spend two milestone Birthdays. Loved sipping some bubbles in the hot tub while enjoying the fantastic views. Thank you

Mr Cheryl D,

Fantastic location and views. High standard of fixtures, fittings, mattresses and bedding. The owner has obviously spent a lot of time and effort in perfecting the property. This is the best property we have ever rented.
