When we arrived at Spinning Reel our booking was cancelled because the owner cancelled my booking instead of another one..It was traumatic because we had to look for another accomodation and the others were fully booked. If there was a zero rating i would give it a zero.

You can improve by getting people to do proper cleaning because we got a unpleasant smell in the kitchen area and the bedrooms also had a dusty smell..spider webs behind the bed..But overall it's a nice quiet place to enjoy..

The view of the Beach as well as the fact that the Beach was within Walking Distance from the Cottage was absolutely GREAT! The newly renovated Cottage looked very classy :-) My mother and her sister said that they are definitely returning to Spinning Reel and this time around they are bringing along friends.Bigger tv's would be welcomed though :-) but other than that their stay was GREAT!Thank you RegardsCaron May
