Guestbook comments from the owner
Beautiful sunsets every night, comfortable and romantic cabina.The white sand beach or the village is only a 10 min walk away. We would wake up to the sounds of parrots, monkeys and waves on the beach, sure beats loud traffic. Now considering returning this year.

GREAT LITTLE GET AWAY

  • 5 of 5
This was a wonderful little place to get away from the stresses of everyday life. My family and I spent 2 weeks here in February and loved every minute of it. We were a short walk from an almost private beach, with amazing waves and great swimming and the view from the back yards was breathtaking. The place it’s self was very clean and comfortable, with reliable hot water and internet. It felt like you were all alone in paradise with all the creature comforts one could want with just a short walk into town if you needed something. The only problem I have with writing a good review is that other people will want to stay there and the property will be booked the next time I go.
