Great little place with character, I was sorry we were only staying a single night. Very clean and I would recommend to others.

Hilary's place is beautiful and the location overlooking the dunes and water is stunning. The house is fully equipped with everything you need I would just say it's not ideal for the guests to be asked to clean and tidy the place after paying to stay there - but that said we enjoyed our stay very much & Hilary was quick to respond with our queries on linen & towels

This is a very nice place, with wonderful views over the harbour. It was very much as described. But the list of stuff you are expected to do before leaving would suggest you are getting the place for free rather than £100 a night. First and foremost, we expect to have sheets as part of the deal....a bit like toilet paper...we all need and use it. The description of the house did say there was no sheets but I missed I have never previously encountered it in the 20 rAirbnb places I've stayed in. And then the cleaning...we always leave where we stay as clean as possible but we are not professional cleaners. And we would hope that places we stay at have been professionally cleaned before we move in, and not just cleaned by previous occupants. And then we were asked to take our rubbish away with us. It is a total cheek pocketing our rental money and asking us to do all the servicing.

This is a very comfortable and well stocked self contained house or "batch" overlooking the bay. Shops are approx five minutes away by car for food and drink supplies. The views from most of the windows are spectacular and can be appreciated more by viewing them from the balcony running along two sides of the house. Sheets and towels are not supplied but Hilary can organise this for a small extra cost with enough notice.

Well presented & well equipped Bach - beautiful views of sea and dunes which are well worth catching the water taxi to play on :-)
