They were quick to respond to all enquiries (unlike so many other places I tried!), helpful, friendly and sent cute SMS/e-mail reminders. The house was comfortable, clean and appeared as described. Also nice and close to the beach. Thank you so much I really did have a great stay, I would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting to have a beach getaway with a bigger group of people.
