Ideal long stay accommodation
I really enjoyed my stay here. The host John knows the island so well and was so helpful for sightseeing. The staff were always friendly and the place was well maintained, even if older. The kitchen was well set up. Beautiful gardens with off street parking. Nice quiet street with easy access and within walking distance to the shops and restaurants. I would stay there again.
