“Amazing property”
Reviewed June 1, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

This property was perfect for us, it was self contained and very spacious providing everything that we could ask for including an outside barbecue area. Our pet dog loved the property too and we had no issues with cleaning as again everything was provided.

I would highly recommend this booking and will be using it again if possible.

“Well appointed”
Reviewed September 8, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Good clean facility well equipped and very comfortable furniture. However the accommodation is curious and having stayed we can see why we do not live in conservatories. The bed room come sitting room is in a large square conservatory as can be seen on the property website. It is very hot with the sun on it and noisy during rain storms, it would benefit from and external sail over the poly carbonate roof to keep the sun and rain off. All that being said it is a good location to explore the island from and close to the costal path on each side.
