Delightful stay in a lovely large room with outstanding views to the sea! We visited for a friend's wedding, and would definitely stay here when we return! Room was spotless, and the breakfast was delicious! The hosts were so friendly and welcoming! Thank you!

Having requested water, we were each given 2 bottles of sparkling water- perfect. Outside the rooms was a bookcase- very handy for reading material in bed!... More
