“Absolutely Fabulous”
Reviewed 25 October 2012 for a stay in May 2012

My wife and I stayed at The X-Spot for a weekend away from the kids, Hilde and Roger the hosts were amazing, the location is unbeleivable, the house/apartment beyond our expectations, the drive out there in itself is an awesome experience. We would love to move in there permanently, but what to do with the kids( oh yes boarding school :)
A great big thank you to Hilde and Roger for making our weekend away, relaxing and exciting, can't wait to get back for another weekend !

Thanks very much for your kind words. I do need to point out that even though seeing dolphins, orca's and whales is certainly a possibility, seeing all of these in just 2 days is rare. You were very lucky :-) and we were lucky to have you stay.
