Exceptional 10.0
The proprietors are really welcoming and lovely people who are willing to help in any way they can. The facilities are very well maintained and super clean. The unit felt like a home away from home with many small touches that welcomed you home, and items that you would otherwise just go without while holidaying. A great value accommodation!
