    “We had a lovely week in 'By the Beach'.”

    With the sea only 150 yards away it was perfect for us and the two dogs. A quirky but comfortable house and i especially enjoyed the huge Tv and the American fridge freezer. Needs a bit of a spruce up and a few items ie hairdryer, kitchen foil, extra tea towels would make all the difference. We are looking forward to returning again in the future. Thank you for the bottle of wine and biscuits upon our arrival.

    Dear Samantha, Thank you for your review and saying the house was perfect for you and that you would like to return. When you do you will find it received its annual "spruce up and redecorate " happened the week after your visit, a week in February is the only chance we have, as we are booked all year. The hairdryer was in a spare bedroom drawer and the cooking foil was at the back of the tall pantry, we have now put it in a more prominent drawer. Look forward to seeing you again soon.
