Super accommodation, clean and comfortable, excellent shower. Over and above what we expected. Cleaned regularly to a very high standard, owners attention to detail could not be surpassed. Owners were lovely people. Had some lovely times at Vista Beach bar, the staff there are so friendly. Definitely going back

Although small and basic, which is what you pay for, it was... More
