"Hi Nick Thanks for recommending Hot Dog we did buy a wet suit there . Just wanted to say what a great holiday we had , not sure where to start. Thanks so much for the Prosecco and the very good welcome pack including some milk was brilliant . We just loved the house the first floor balcony with views of the ocean and the sunset was amazing. The location could not have been better it really was just minutes to the beach. The house was beautiful and the attention to detail was fantastic not sure what we liked best ,clothes lines in the garden and garage for hanging up the wetsuits ,the children were in love with the ice dispenser ,comfortable beds and blackout blinds but the most luxurious touch was the outdoor shower. Please let us know what the cost would be for the week of 9th July 2016 as we are already thinking about next years holiday . Do hope we may catch your singing then as got caught up in the Tennis final on the TV this year. Best Wishes Susan"
