We have got water so come! Waterside Cottage is about aesthetic appeal, high function and pure pleasure with a healthy dose of Wow factor. Your bedroom is bright & beautiful with en-suite shower and doors to sunny Afro-Maroc patio. You have use of my beautiful house & garden + kayaks on the lagoon. Spend time lounging on the outdoor sofas and enjoying the fabulous water and mountain views.

I work from home so seek peace-loving guests. I only accept 2 adults travelling together, with hire car.

Carrie’s waterside house is beautifully located in a pretty lakeside marina not far from the sea. A great location. We were warmly welcomed by Carrie who was very helpful and accommodating. The room was clean and comfortable. Altogether a very pleasant stay.
