What a lovely property this is! We travelled with ourselves, our 1 year old, friends and their two year old. House had everything we all needed for a brilliant stay and plenty of room for two families. Louise couldn't have been more helpful in making sure we had everything we needed, including travel cot and high chair. Great location close to town centre and beach.
