Loved it!

Loved it! Our little chalet well exceeded our expectations. We put the hot tub to good use while watching the sunset over the harbor. The rooms were huge, quiet, very clean and had everything we could have wanted. We felt so at home it was a shame to leave. Their attention to detail is really what made us feel so special. This was the perfect getaway - thanks for having us!

Great location, lovely owners, but Rata room I stayed in is very small indeed and it was awkward in lots of ways.

A very nice and comfortable stay. The owners are extremely friendly and accommodating. The property is interesting; rooms have a wonderful view over the river. Only slight downside is that one needs to drive if you want to go out for dinner.
