This house is stunning and yet still homely and comfortable. We stayed here in the cooler months and it still took our breath away. Will definitely be back when Summer comes around. Heather was amazingly responsive and helpful. We highly recommended this property for a wonderful escape from the city to the south coast. Thanks so much for an excellent stay.
The location of this house is absolutely perfect for a beach holiday with small children. We were there for a winter break, and although the weather was a bit ordinary for the first few days, the house was big enough and spacious enough (and well-equipped enough) to keep everyone happy. Once the weather improved, the beach was only a few steps away - close enough to play and swim until we were too cold, and then race home for a hot shower or bath and a warming drink.
The delightful walking path that went for miles along the coast in either direction was an added attraction: at various times, we walked or biked along it, and even the littlest could easily ride her little scooter.
We had only two reservations. One was the rather odd bathroom configuration, with one shared "en suite" between two bedrooms (which meant locking and then remembering to unlock three doors!) and the main bedroom's bathroom being through two doors.
The other was the kitchen cupboards, which mostly consisted of drawers inside cupboards, so that to get out one plate, you had to open two doors, then pull out a drawer. Doesn't sound too bad, except that the counters themselves are curvy so that if someone has left the adjacent cupboard open, you have to close that before starting the process. A bit of a First World Problem, I agree, but problematic while you're learning someone else's kitchen and have to open and close ten drawers to find what you need! Also, sounds crazy but I really would have appreciated a bit more empty space in the kitchen, to put my own things. Even the little pantry, while well-designed (and with a good selection of basics in it) was too small to store all the groceries we needed for a family of eight for a week.
I must make mention of the courtesy and rapidity with which the agents dealt with an issue we had with the gas (cooking, heating and water-heating) on our first night. I reported it first thing in the morning, and by mid-morning a very friendly crew were on the job, which was, we think, much bigger than anyone had expected. Tiffany was fantastic about keeping us informed, and by late afternoon we were once again cosy and well-fed!
