"We booked this little get away to spend some quality time together. We arrived late Friday to be greeted by candles, relaxing music, bubbly, strawberries and chocolates. The following morning we were greeted by the most beautiful views. The hot tub was amazing, the bed was amazing, the bath tub was amazing. Everything was perfect. It was exactly what both of us needed. A little piece of heaven. We will definitely be back. Thank you so much for making our weekend one to remember."

"After a fantastic honeymoon last year here, we simply couldn't think of anywhere else to celebrate our amazing first year of marriage. It truly is the perfect romantic oasis to escape life and enjoy a bit of luxury time together. Really words could never do the cottage or the experience of staying here any justice. We loved sitting in the sun overlooking the ever changing view and spend each night in the hot tub. Thanks for sharing this amazing place - will guarantee we will be back ASAP!!!!!"
