Simply the Best

Pros: Immaculate room, great location, perfect breakfasat.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: Beautiful town to walk around, overlooking the bay.
This is a beautiful house, the room was immaculate. The location is perfect, overlooking the bay. Our room was beside the pool, a very peaceful setting. They have two lovely little dogs who are a joy to watch. Unfortunately my wife had picked up a tummy bug but Nikki kindly gave her some medicine which aided her recovery. They are both great hosts who gave us useful advice for our travels. Breakfast, cooked by Stefan was perfect. If you're in this area, please don't miss the opportunity to stay here. Absolutely fabulous!
