About the owner: We are the Family Hendrichs. The Bungalow is our holiday retreat, but Iresha spends most of her time here as it is a large property and requires management to ensure it is maintained to high standards for our guests. Iresha will always be at The Bungalow to welcome you and ensure your party is looked after during your stay. Whatever you need, she is the person to ask and she will organise it for you. We also have other staff members in the property including a cook and cleaner, who are managed by Iresha.
