"Superb property, ideal location, stunning scenery, loads to do!"

Great family holiday was had in this amazing property, very spacious and well equipped throughout.
The house is generously appointed with all the requirements needed to make it a home from home. Very comfortable beds, good kitchen appliances, everything worked and the whole house was clean and well maintained. Needless to say we would recommend this property to anyone – we can't wait to visit again.
We visited the islands with our teenage children - not the easiest to please - but even they rated it as one of the best holidays they have had.
The surrounding views are absolutely breathtaking. The house is situated in a great location with a pleasant short walk down to the coast and only a few minutes to the nearest pub (great food and service). A superb place to stay and a surprising variety of interesting sites to visit and activities to keep the whole family occupied. Will definitely be making a return visit.
