    “This is by far the best holiday rental we have rented, 5 stars ⭐️ only a couple of slight things that we’d change ( and we really would not change much as this place is awesome) the gate pin didn’t work and there wasn’t a gate tag in the apartment so to get the car into the complex my husband sat in the car, I went into the apartment to open the gate.”

    The second bedroom was roasting hot only realised there was a fan in the wardrobe when we checked out! This was our fault! The holiday home was amazing - from coffee pods to welcome wine, milk and coffees thank you for an amazing family break x
