Customer Testimonials

Both the cottage and the town were everything we expected and more!! We were delighted with 'Sailfish' it is a stunning property and so well suited to our needs in every respect, from the flexibility the property offers, the location (so near to the beaches) and the very high standard throughout. We really appreciated the welcome pack you left for us and Tesco delivered our shopping right on time too.
Frank & Rachel Lightbody
Very impressed by the high standards of absolutely everything from the welcome hamper, quality of decoration, fixtures & fittings and cleanliness, to the little extras like tea, sugar, milk and cleaning items. Truly worth 5 stars.
