Found the house easily. When entering it is bigger than you expect. Our little dog immediately found the bowl of water waiting for him. Everything you need is there, even some supplies to get you through the first day. Thank you! The house was clean and fragrant. It gives a very cosy, homely feel. My husband who arrived a day later kept going round: 'it has something'. Although it wasn't really summer yet we also enjoyed the garden. Did get a spot of sun on the sun deck. The sea front and high street are close by. Lots of nice shops, restaurants and nice beach walks. We had a super relaxing holiday. Do use the parking that is withing walking distance and reasonably priced. I risked parking on the double yellow line to unload the luggage (as I arrived alone) when I wanted to move the car I already gotten a ticket :-) that would have bought me lots of nice afternoon coffees at Elliot's cafe.
