Star haven was wonderful! From the moment we arrived, nothing was too much trouble, our hosts Rob and Ian were extremely accommodating. As we were going to a function I had enquired about early check in, and they messaged us at two to say our room was ready! Breakfast was delicious, and the property was simply beautiful in a fantastic area with beautiful views over the bay. In all, a perfect mini break... can’t wait ‘ til we go again
