"Spacious, well kept and has everything you need including a fantastic hot tub!"
I cant really fault the stay at Spindrift, it's a spacious bungalow and although we were only 2 people it could happily take the 8 stated in the description.
It has 4 large bedrooms and enough living space so your not on top of each other. The kitchen has everything you could ever need, and it all seemed reasonably new and well kept.
The only down side we could find was that one of the sofa's was being re-covered while we stayed so we couldn't use it, but we were told about this before we booked so it's not really a negative about the property itself.
Overall I would say this is a good place to stay, although its great for a couple the property would really suit families. We did use the hot tub on 2 occasions, an added bonus in a cold and rainy November!
