5/5 Excellent

This place is an amazing place to chill out and enjoy nature! We had a 2 bedroom chalet which was HUGE!...So spacious with the most amazing view. About a 10min walk down to beach and the beach is just serene! We loved our relaxing stay here - so peaceful and enjoyable. Staff were excellent, room was clean, quiet even though we had neighbours. Will definitely be going back!
