Funky house with a lovely sunny spot to drink coffee and watch the birds in the morning. Very comfortable bed, thoughtful touches (fresh fruit to enjoy), quiet, and good communication before arriving. I can recommend a stay here.

It was lovely to host you Lucy. We are glad you enjoyed exploring the area and made use of the bike . And appreciated your relaxed approach with an unexpected visitor due to birth of a friend’s baby girl.

Hal and Joani's house is beautiful and a lovely quiet place to stay. Our room was cosy, the spa was large and relaxing and Hal was a warm and friendly host. Highly recommended!
