Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Great place. We booked both apartments (whole house) and were incredibly pleased. The house was clean & tidy, well set out, plenty of parking and the kids loved the size of the yard. The outdoor areas were great and if we'd had longer we would have loved to bbq on the deck. A lovely place to stay in and a great rate!!! The owners were well organized & always friendly. We look forward to heading up your way again.
