Amazing holiday let
We've been staying at ocean view for the last 10 years and were concerned when the property changed ownership that we'd not have the opportunity to have a great experience yet again. We were mistaken. Dave and Nat have made some fantastic alterations to the property that really did enhance it and our 3 week stay. The make over of the interior, the changes to the driveway, the conservatory, the wet room....all look amazing...and the welcome we received was outstanding. The support and availability of the owners throughout the stay..ensuring we had the best experience possible...from installing a new blind and seeing us through a national grid power cut ...was incredible. We were flicking through the guest comments book and soon realized we were not alone in our experience all the previous occupancy had the same high level and high quality stay. Would highly recommend this as a holiday stay not just because of the location and scenery but because of the amazing high quality accommodation. We will be back!
