    "We stayed at the bungalow as a multi-generational group and it was suitable for all ages. The location was great only a short walk to the town and beach.

    The bungalow was well equipped with all the essential needs for a family weekend. The host was very friendly and helpful everyone in our group had a wonderful time and are looking forward to staying again.
