An excellent family property with a very good range of equipment and quality furnishings. Brilliant location for the beach and shops.Mrs Sally Woodward - 14th April 2016

The welcome pack was brilliant - what a lovely touch!Mrs J S Hughes - 21st February 2016
We had a lovely long weekend and Rowan Villa was ideal; plenty of space and a great kitchen for cooking and socialising in. Thank you for the goodies at the start of our stay.Mrs C Hammond - 2nd December 2015
I thought it was absolutely lovely. A great deal of thought had obviously gone into the choice of furnishings and equipment (particularly in the splendid kitchen). We all agreed it was a perfect holiday home. Your staff really were helpful in dealing with a couple of maintenance issues - nothing was too much trouble.Ms Jane Rayson - 11th October 2015
