Perfect location.... not very clean
Good points.......Lovely place with plenty of space for the 8 of us and a lovely location. Equipped with everything you could need for a short or long stay. Bad points.....wasn't very clean.... under the beds there was fluff, tissues , sweet wrappers where it hadn't been clean and we had to wash all the crockery and cutlery before we could eat as it was filthy. Check time was a bit early at 10, a lot of places now check out at 11 and this could be something to consider

6/10 Good

The house is ok, enough room and beds. The only issue is the master room, we found quite number of “live” black spot insects moving on the floor of the bathroom. And even in the bedsheet, on the wall. We checked all other rooms and beds and noticed another 3 live black spots in the another queen bed. it makes me sleepless whole night. Feel it might moves on my body. all other single beds are ok.

10/10 Exceptional

Love it! Too huge in fact for our family of 6 but we were spoilt for choices on the rooms available to sleep in. And we are able to stargaze just outside the house and the view is fantastic. The insects too :p
