I stayed here with my extended family in June 2016 for about 5 nights. It's a great house that came with lots of extra touches like fresh milk, fruit, beach towels and face washers. We travelled with little children and had requested a cot from the managers. They went the extra mile and also provided a baby bath, nappy bin,...

Management response:

Thanks for your kind comments on the house Nic and happy to hear that the baby equipment came in handy for you. Best wishes Lizzie and Nick.

We were very touched by your Christmas gift of beautiful coffee......

We stayed for 5 nights and I'm delighted to give the property full marks. Everything was clean, well maintained and of high quality. A nice touch was the fact that everyday essentials were provided (washing powder, salt, pepper, milk, cooking oil etc). We used the BBQ facilities one night and sat outside until the wee hours of the morning -...

Management response:

If we were staying in a home we would like to find the basics such as oil, salt pepper sugar etc in the pantry too! Thank you so much for giving Wilks House the 'thumbs up'. I will pass your comments on to the Housekeeping team as it is great for them to know that guests have enjoyed their stay....
