Interaction with guests
The keys will be in a key safe for your arrival although I will come to see you to make sure you have found everything you need. I live locally so will be on hand if there is anything I can help with. You will find milk, tea, coffee and sugar at the house on arrival and a treat in the cake tin.

This is not a holiday let, it’s a holiday home. We had a fantastic Christmas at the beach house, four generations under one roof and plenty of space to enjoy. It’s been said before but the owner Carol is one of a kind, I’ve never felt so welcome as she made us feel and all the little extras were over...

Management response:

It was lovely to meet you all and I am so glad you enjoyed your first visit (hopefully of many) to the Island. Thank you for being perfect guests. Carol

This was our second visit to this lovely beach house, this year there was the addition of a new garden room, it just gets better. Many thanks to Carol for the homemade lemon curd, jam and cakes, also the gifts for the grandchildren. We visited carrisbrook castle when the jousting was on, this is a must if you are there...

Management response:
