    “Beautiful house, wonderful setting and a very warm welcome from Anne.”
    We received a truly warm welcome for our two week stay in this beautiful house - the owner Anne just couldn't do enough to make sure we had everything we needed. The house itself is very comfortable and well equipped with the setting overlooking the Atlantic Ocean wonderful. There are plenty of safe clean beaches within easy reach and Anne had left a folder with details of the many places of interest for days out. We had a great time and hope to return in the not to distant future.
