Interaction with guests
I live 15 minutes away from Sunshine House so I am on hand if there is a problem or can quickly get it sorted.
I tend to have a hands-off approach so guests can have privacy and feel totally like they are at home during their holiday. But I am always available if help is needed.
I leave plenty of information in the house with suggestions for things to do, but often I am asked to make restaurant, taxi, trip recommendations before a visit and I am very happy to help out.

Booked for a family birthday. Lovely spacious house in a fantastic location. Just across the road from the beach & few minutes walk into the town centre. Owner made our visit very comfortable, everything we needed to hand. Would defiantly recommend. Great long weekend away.

Alnmouth (25 minutes drive approx) and Berwick upon Tweed (40 minutes drive approx). Both stations have parking. The area is also great for cycling and we have a large garage for bike security.
