          You've been highly recommended by a friend who stayed with you and couldn't say enough good things. I've looked at pictures and read reviews and it all sounds wonderful, but how do I get a quote on accommodation? Thinking 2 weeks soon, but not sure of date yet. 2 adults. I would greatly appreciate a response as soon as you're able. Thank you. Also, is there a pool? Not necessary given the lovely beach, but just a question.

          Hello. We would love to have you stay with us. January would be your best option for a 2-week stay, as February & March are a little full. Thanks, James
