Nice little Hideaway

Location was fabulous, very relaxing, staff friendly, happy and seemed to enjoy their jobs! Meals were delicious and it was great not having to choose, the meals were always a surprise! Unseasonal amount of rain, one sunny day out of three was pretty good! Will return again in the future! Thank you Alex and Staff! Cheers
