Great house

  • 5 of 5

Super clean and very well organized. Lots of toys available for the kids. Beds were comfy and plenty of blankets. We lucked out with great winter weather. Kitchen was well equipped. Some beach towels would be a nice touch. Deborah was fantastic to deal with and very organized with a list of things we needed to bring for ourselves which is very useful. Thanks again for a great stay.

We can highly recommend this house. we had two families of four there and were not cramped at all. Although the house is a little smaller than it looks on the photos, we had no issues and would look at it again for next time; Everything is new , clean and well maintained. cheers and thanks for a great holiday.
