    Hello, this accommodation sounds amazing but I can't find how you book it! Sounds silly but no website seems to allow you to view prices or book. Can anyone advise? Thanks

    Use the e mail address under 'contact' on their website, it gets a prompt response and all arrangements can be made through this. We've been twice and had no problems this way and you get exactly what you want.
