    An absolute delight

    We had the best stay here. Stayed for 5 nights and we were so comfortable. The house is decked out in such a cool way and is really close to the beach and the shops. Monica is a wonderful and thoughtful host and I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a stay somewhere with character. Loved it

    Not a property I would visit again or recommend

    We left after the first night (booked for two). The property needs a good thorough cleaning in and out as it is dusty, musty and badly ventilated. Cups, microwave, stove and chopping board all had food remnants or stains. After a couple of hours of settling in and whilst sitting in the lounge with our car parked right outside the front door, the owner tried to open the door via keycode without knocking. I opened the door and she was apologetic but commented that she was going to come in and lie on the bed. Felt very uncomfortable with privacy. We paid good money for substandard accommodation - will never return. Money paid should be refunded.

    Close to beach

    Monica was really easy to deal with. We had a problem on arrival day, with the wrong door code given, and the place not yet serviced but that was rectified while we went out to eat. There was also a plumbing emergency that she dealt with quickly and was always considerate of not inconveniencing us. The location is excellent, being a short walk to the beach and not far to shops and restaurants. We enjoyed the retro vibe but there were the usual problems with self serviced accommodation where previous users have left a messy microwave and dishes. Also, the yard is more suited to a well socialized dog than ours.
