Our stay in the holiday home was excellent. Jay was a very nice host and she even showed us around the area and gave us some welcome groceries. The location of the house is very good. The house itself is very spacious and has all things needed for a nice stay.

Management response:

Thank you to you both for your review. I am really pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope you return some day. Sincerely Jay
