Star haven was wonderful! From the moment we arrived, nothing was too much trouble, our hosts Rob and Ian were extremely accommodating. As we were going to a function I had enquired about early check in, and they messaged us at two to say our room was ready! Breakfast was delicious, and the property was simply beautiful in a fantastic area with beautiful views over the bay. In all, a perfect mini break... can’t wait ‘ til we go again

Romantic Destination, worth a detour.
True to the photos, it's an amazing property. The hosts are professional, but friendly, and serve a very nice breakfast. There's a number of extra special amenities, and we chose to watch Bohemian Rhapsody in their theater with freshly served popcorn and ice cream.

Accommodation and facilities were spectacular. It's obvious that much thought and effort has been taken to achieve such quality. No need is unmet; the hosts made us feel at home and that nothing was too much trouble.
