Great location, near to the main street and near to the beach. We used the outdoor (hot!) shower after swimming, which is such a great idea! The garden is amazing. The kitchen was well equipped regarding equipment. The wifi and TV reception was patchy but that's to be expected in the country from time to time. We had a lovely stay and really enjoyed ourselves.

I stayed with my dad at Lisa's place. We had a good stay. The place was clean, easily accessible from the city centre, and well set up. My dad enjoyed the garden and fruit trees. There was a mix up with the number of beds made, and Lisa responded quickly to fix the issue and gave us some goodie bags as apology. However I would advise people to bring spare towels and consumables, as we were only allocated one hair towel for two people, no bath mat, and half a roll of toilet paper, so we quickly ran out!
