Perfect location but unfortunately dilapidated house in need of urgent upkeep. Facilities is shocking!Oven does not work - either maximum temp or off. Kettle did not work, no outside lights - light bulbs not working, bathrooms in a sad state and dirty, beds very uncomfortable, cutlery and crockery needs to be replaced - of terrible quality, cutlery is rusted, lack of security, no heating for the colder nights....This is an back packers venue and NOT a holiday home and should be marketed as such - misleading advertising ! Not an experience to remember. It is a real pity that this beautiful loca...

Stunning views of the sea with the beach right on the doorstep. Sat watching whales and dolphins from the veranda. Beautiful quiet location
