Our place is right on the beach, about half an hour's drive from the city centre on a rural road. There is no public transport, so you need your own car. We've got an additional spare room which can be used as "overflow", e.g. if you have kids.

Our village is small and doesn't have any shops or restaurants, so you'll need to bring all your supplies with you. You're welcome to use our kitchen, dining room and lounge.

Annette and Geoff’s place has comfortable beds, a great beach to walk on, and they share lots of local information. The space was clean, they were very hospitable and lovely to our two teenage daughters. I would recommend their home.
