We celebrated my husbands 60th with family and friends and the Lucy House was perfect. We spent 90% of our time enjoying the large pool area. The kitchen had everything we needed and there plenty of towels, etc. Not only was the house well appointed but it was also walking distance to the shops and restaurants.
