Dining Table and Kitchen

Lesley was very professional and ensured that Cloud 9 was set up to feel like home away from home. The house was immaculate, spa warm on arrival and the groceries to get us started were very appreciated - as were the toiletries in the bathroom. An excellent experience all round because care had been taken with the details. Fantastic view, quiet, private and clean. Great for a family holiday and not too far from Russell. A great experience all round because care had been taken with the details. D & R Islip
