Great family home - a stone's throw from the beach



"We stayed at the Deckhouse for a week in November. The house was a good size for us, five adults and a child. My daughter loved the fact there were toys in the house she could play with. The bedrooms were a good size as were the bathrooms. The kitchen was really well stocked also. The location was ideal, close to the beach and local shops and restaurants." C Rose.
