We booked either a 1 bedroom cottage or an apartment (don't remember which) and were told that we would be given the 3 bedroom house since we were staying for 2 weeks.

Great location, great rental vehicle and great accomodation. No it aint the Novatel, but you would have to be hard to please not to like it. The price is right and you have every thing you require.

Lovely comfortable place to stay. Clean and tidy and very comfortable beds. Nice and quiet and peaceful area within easy drive of everything. I stayed here with my 76 year old mum and she thought the place was excellent too. Would definitely stay here again.
