Was a great place for our 14month olds first holiday and first trip to the beach. Great location, quiet, absolutely spotless, great staff and reasonably priced for the time period. Best bed we have slept in. Thank you *thumbs up*. :)

Hello Rob When we stayed there was no mention of a security deposit. I think we booked online and paid in advance so maybe that makes a difference? Regards Di
