This charming house directly on the beach was exactly as we imagined from the description and pictures. We were with a small group but it would be great with a large group too since there were plenty of bedrooms and a great kitchen. The village had beautiful beaches, a good selection of shops and restaurants and a free bus in summer to get around. The owners were very kind and always reacted promptly when contacted.
Ker Izella is a charming three-storey rambling house with a fair sized garden overlooking Carantec beach. The location couldn’t be better for families with young children looking for safe swimming and a sandy beach. The large kitchen and separate dining area - we seated 17 round the long table- makes it ideal for groups. (Some chairs need repair) The beds were comfortable enough, though some mattresses were showing their age, and showers on each floor an asset but the one on the first floor in need of attention. The lack of hanging spots for clothes and towels was an inconvenience, but this is essentially a brilliant place for a big group fun holiday. We’d like to return, but would hope some of the suggestions above are taken into account.
Thank you so much for these helpful comments, we will be looking at them. We are so glad you had a lovely time.
