Martins house was a great option for us. Reasonably priced, it had great character and facilities! Perfect for exploring the peninsular. Martin is a great host - he answered all our questions and was very helpful!

LOVED this place! Will definitely be back here again. This place really feels like a 'home'. It was so cosy and a generous sized place and is close to lots of restaurants and the beach. It's fully equipped for all needs. Martin the host was excellent in communication - I was never unsure of anything. Thanks again!

This is a great house,especially for families. Kitchen not huge but lovely big communal dining table and family lounge space. Loved the central heating. Quick and warm. Loved the free wifi. In warmer weather the decks would be great. Our queen bed in main house was very comfortable. Nice and quiet. A short walk to the beach which is lovely.

Martin was a great host. Had a fabulous time. Beach was easy walking distance but the street was nice and quiet. Really enjoyed local walks and having a comfortable home base from which to explore lots of places around the Peninsula. Loved sitting on the back deck and enjoying time with friends. Kitchen had everything we needed and there was no shortage of reading material on the bookcases. Definitely hoping for a return visit sometime. :)
