A comment from a visitor; "Wow; I've stayed in many holiday homes and these are in a class of their own. As well as the location and design, the warmth and creativity of these homes are unforgettable.
Thanks for having them so spotlessly clean and organised. It makes them a pleasure to stay in, and a pleasure to leave them that way for the next guests to enjoy.
We'll be back!"
