    What a find!

    What a find both the location and the house was perfect. Can't fault the accommodation lots of care and consideration with everything you need supplied and super comfy beds and a perfect sun trap in the courtyard made it a great choice for a break. Portland is a quiet relaxing place with a good choice of places to eat. Thanks

    Spotlessly Clean!

    The perfect weekend away to the beach! The house was spotlessly clean, had a very well equipped kitchen and three lovely, comfortable bedrooms! Located right next to the beach, there were some great lunch spots nearby including Billy Winters and Salt. We loved our stay, thanks for having us!
