We recently stayed here with our children and grandchildren - we had 3 units. Steve and Caroline were very welcoming and helpful and we found the facilities excellent for our holiday. Great having the pool during the hot summer weather too and we appreciated the aircon and free unlimited wifi. I have no hesitation recommending. Thanks, Fleur's and Rex
