Reviews of this property
"Lovely property. Very high standard of facilities and a beautiful location. The owners were just next door but we’re very unobtrusive. The online pictures did not do it justice. The town was very easily accessed with lovely walking routes in to the main town of Potes. The Garage meant the car was protected from the heat and we could easily store our roof boot. The pool and BBQ area were tidy and well maintained. The kitchen/ laundry facilities looked brand new. We were shown around by the owner on our arrival. The lady did not speak English but everything was clear and she was very friendly. We really enjoyed our stay."
"Friendly informative service. Good communication and an obvious enthusiasm for the region with a real personal feel."
The property itself was excellent and perfect for our requirements, ie three families, two of whom had small children. The info provided via the Vamoos app was also very good and helped us find our way around. I would definitely recommend you to anybody, we.were certainly not disappointed."
"Great and efficient company."
"High quality property in lovely location. Owner does not speak English but was very helpful and dealt with a couple of minor issues as soon as raised. Great facilities, very clean and in excellent state of decor. Will book again."
