"A quick thanks for arranging our accommodation last weekend at the perfect spot.
We had an awesome weekend, it’s a lovely spot you guys have there.

We are keen to rent it again sometime.


"Hi Frith, Bruce and Susanne

We had a fabulous time at the Perfect Spot. The house is so spacious and well appointed. We really enjoyed spending time in your fantastic garden, swimming in the sheltered cove, and popping across to the lodge for coffee. Thanks for all your help in organising and making it work smoothly for us. We hope to come again soon.
