The sitting room is connected to a well-equipped kitchen (including oven and hob, fridge-freezer and microwave) with a small table and stools.

Although there is plenty of space on the road, if preferred it is possible to park a car on the property.

The rental includes the supply of bed linen and towels. Please bring your own beach towels, which also double up as pool towels.
The rental also includes the use of the air conditioning units in the three bedrooms overnight. However, should someone have the units on for more than that and so incur a much higher than normal usage of electricity, we may ask for a contribution, after discussion.

N.B. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE RENTAL PRICE IS REDUCED AS THERE MAY OR MAY NOT BE SOME BUILDING NOISE.
A new house immediately behind ours was started in the Spring of 2021, but the work stopped until such time as a buyer was found. So far no buyer, so no building work. However, in the event that a buyer is found and building work is recommenced, there may be building noise. At present the structure of the house and pool is there, so there will be no heavy plant like diggers and cranes. There may also be distant building noise from other properties being built in the locality.
We respectfully request that the inside of the house be treated as a non-smoking area, and that no parties or events are held there.
