Guestbook comments from the manager
Villa Natura was just wonderful for our break. Private, quiet and well equipped for all our needs. The Welcome Pack and provision of beach towels were additional pluses. The whole booking and support process with SandyBlue has been efficient and friendly.
Would recommend Maria's, Parilla Natura and BJ's Oceanside as 3 great places to dine.
Thanks for everything would certainly use you again.
