  • You won't find better

    "Where do I start? This cabin was absolutely amazing! From the lovely aromas to the great decor and it was even decorated for Christmas! The views were spectacular and our family had a terrific time! We will definitely be back to this cabin! We even left some of our clothes in the closet and the owner has been nice enough to FedEx it back to us! Trust me you will not be sorry by renting this cabin!"

  • Great Condo!

    "We stayed here in the summer, and had a great time. As mentioned in an earlier review, the pictures don't do this condo justice. The condo is in a great location in the resort. It's an easy stroll to the village. We plan on booking this condo again in the winter, since it is truly ski-in and ski-out."

  • Stunning views and excellent location

    "This apartment seemed much better decorated than the pictures. The views from the balcony are absolutely perfect and with a little baby in tow we were often happy just hanging on the balcony enjoying the sound of the waves and watching dolphins without having to go anywhere! The pool is so warm and right next to the ocean. There are some great places to eat/drink nearby and the free trolley stops right outside the apartment that takes you all around the island. The a/c was warm for our baby at 75 but there is an extra fan in the room and a ceiling that made up for it, and that temp was perfect for everyone else as long as you keep the balcony doors closed. Hope to return!"

  • Great Owner with beautiful home

    "Five of us stayed very comfortably at this town home near downtown Omaha. Our travel party included my wife and I, two high school age sons and Grandma. Plenty of space for everyone and all the comforts of home. Great location and very clean and well maintained. We'll be back!"

There is also the famous museum of waxworks called Madam Tussaud's where you can see famous personalities from around the world immortalized in wax.

Seasons to Visit the United Kingdom

The weather of the United Kingdom is characterized by rain, and a lot of it. The advantage of this is that the rural landscapes are perpetually green and very scenic. Winters are generally quite long and in the central and northern regions, snowfalls are not uncommon. Winter starts from mid-October and generally lasts until the end of April. Spring and autumn are usually quite short-lived. Summer is from June to August and daytime temperatures can get quite hot. On a sunny day, especially if it is on the weekend, you will see many of the locals out and about making the most of the good weather. Summertime is traditionally the peak tourist season and major tourist attractions can get very crowded. If you are willing to travel out of season and possible put up with a little bit of bad weather, you can benefit from some great travel deals.
