    “The Barn was an absolutely amazing stay for our girls getaway.”

    Every detail of the property has been so perfectly thought through, you can't fault it! Very well equipped, detailed instructions and recommendations for everything you might need, and perfectly decorated. The photos are very accurate (in fact, the space felt bigger in person!). Nestled in a quiet area but a short drive away from shops and the beach. Debbie and Kevin were extremely welcoming and kind. Would absolutely recommend and love to return.
