Verified reviewvery good

Easy in and out house with good access and beach views. Comfy beds, good showers and underfloor heating a plus as it was very cold. Good fireplace. Security gate and locks felt a little flimsy and plumbing should be checked more routinely (blocked basin and smelly kitchen sink). Also please add mattress covers/protectors to otherwise good bedding. Good value with these small issues fixed.
