Best host ever!!
We have been at Katie's for the second time now and I enjoyed it even more than last year. Everything about the place is chill and comfy, however, it is Debbie, the owner, who is outstanding!!! She somehow made it possible for us to come on short notice when Germans weren't required to quarantine anymore and we had already lost our booking with her... Just great!! She has a solution to any problem one puts to her. The area, beaches, people, places, are so nice and laid back - just what we needed at this point. We will be certainly be back soon. Thank you for everything, Debbie and David!!

Katie's Cottage
Beautiful cottage that has everything you could need for your stay. Very clean when we arrived. Area is very peaceful, there is a beach within walking distance and lots of opportunities for long walks. The host has included some details of walks in a folder which also has other information about the local area and history of the cottage.
