A very comfortable and well appointed unit, with friendly staff and positioned in a nice secure estate with access to the canal. Good for a family with 2 small children.

As we booked blind except for a brief look at the web site we were very impressed with what was on offer and so reasonably priced. The ethic of offering something that would attract the local "non U$D market" is also greatly appreciated as so often we are priced out in favour of the big bucks people.

We were there for such a short period but hope to come back some time in 2010.

We had an excellent stay and hospitality beyond expectation, Tin Shack should be highly recommended on your website! Further, thank you for the effortless booking and user friendly website; I will certainly make use of it in future.
