Guest Comments:
Mrs W (August 2019): Excellent "Brilliant house in a great location. It was really well equipped and comfy and homely. Looking out to the view of the harbour everyday really made you feel like you were on holiday. We would definitely go back to this property."
Mr B (August 2019): Good "Lovely location - the view from our french windows of the harbour was spectacular. Nice apartment - the toilet and shower rooms were a bit small and could have done with a window each - but the open plan lounge and kitchen upstairs were great for us and our dog. Nice balcony furniture also. I would rate 8 out of ten, overall"
