"Excellent accommodation , great pool and set in a beautiful rural location"

We really loved this property . Accommodation was spotlessly clean with excellent facilities to enjoy the great weather we experienced. The pool was great for our two boys and in the evening we enjoyed having barbeques around the pool area while the boys swam. We visited some great beaches only an hour away and the surrounding countryside was beautiful. Mr and Mrs Yik were very good hosts and am pleased to say the barbecue we enjoyed on the final evening cooked by Mr. Yik was superb! We would definitely return to this lovely accommodation.
