    A Beautiful Retreat

    The property is situated on a beautiful piece of land and the property itself was spacious, well decorated, clean and cosy. Peter is a fantastic host and his communication throughout was impeccable. The added bonus of a private pool and hot tub made this property an outstanding place to stay. We will be back!
