5/5 Excellent

Great place to stay
We had a fantastic time staying here. This was the first time we have taken our dog on holiday with us. The yard was plenty big enough and well maintained providing room for her to relax and run around in. The beach and main st were a short walk from the house, we’re we discovered doggy friendly cafes. The house is situated on a quiet street, and was clean, tidy and comfortable. A lovely place to chill out and relax. We highly recommend😊
