"Lovely house and very clean. Pool and garden - Fabulous and much better than I expected. Great facilities and lovely quiet location. I would recommend the property and would return again." MO, Ireland, June 11.
"Whilst each 'Acacia' may be slightly different to the general photo on the company website, as was ours, we were not disappointed. An accurate description re facilities, rooms etc. We were slightly overlooked, as they advised but this really made no difference as footflow past the villa minimal. Really spacious, plenty of storage, excellent kitchen facilities and plenty of outdoors seating etc. Would definately book again. " JL, UK, April 11.
