Excellent sea view and close to the beach. Shopping centres within short driving distance. Very clean and insect free room. It is good to be able to choose days you wish to sleep all day and not be disturbed by cleaning services. In this way we were able to totally relax and unwind .

The chalet was beautifully decorated, clean and neat. It is a bonus that you can walk to the beach! The letting agents are very accomodating and helpful. The surrounds are peaceful and quiet. Had a wonderful rest

We really loved the place...in fact 3 nights was very short for such a beautiful and peaceful place. We enjoyed the proximity to the beach and the views. Although we had a vehicle but the establishment is within walking distance from shops. We definitely go back again in future.
