  • Had a lovely stay. The cottage is central to everything in Russell, it is lovely being able to walk to restaurants, cafes and the beach. The house is perfect, spacious, clean, great amenities (we loved the pool and spa). Lesley was helpful when we checked in, telling us all we needed to know and some good food restaurant tips! Thanks for a wonderful stay :)
