Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

Everyone in our large family group thoroughly enjoyed staying in this house. It was very comfortable and there was plenty of room for everyone. The children enjoyed watching the large fish eating the zucchini and loved playing in the courtyard and the room between the dining room and the large passageway. The house is in an ideal location with plenty of eating places nearby. This is a very well equipped and very comfortable house.

Great Place for a Family

  • 5 of 5

We found the house to be clean and well equipped.

Conveniently located to points of interest and restaurants.

The children in the party found enjoyed watching the fish eat the zucchini in the big fish tank..

The availability of Wi Fi would help but we survived without it.

We travel with our own pillows and were glad we had as the pillows supplied were a bit hard.

We would stay here again if we were travelling with the family

Spacious house

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of four lady golfers and each enjoyed a bedroom to ourselves, two bedrooms using the main bathroom and the other two bedrooms sharing the ensuite. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of extra blankets which we used when the overnight temp went down to 1 degree C. The house was warm and everything we needed was there. It's a quirky heritage house that seems to have been added to, so it took us a while to get our bearings. We had an issue with the dishwasher leaking slightly which was resolved by Tania very efficiently and promptly. A negative with this property is the fish tank which is not very attractive and needing a clean. Apart from that no complaints. More lounge seating would be good, four of us could sit comfortably but if we had been a bigger party they would have been on dining chairs. The little garden would be lovely in summer.
