The premises was terrific.

  • 4 of 5

The premises was terrific. 5 stars. Clean, spacious and very modern. All the extra bits and pieces were provided (including beach toys for my four year old). The wifi was a bit iffy at times, but we weren't there to surf the net all day and night. Can't recommend this accommodation highly enough.

Beautiful house.

Beautiful house. Comfortable, clean, warm and plenty of space. It was nice to come back from the beach to a sheltered tropical garden. We loved it. Thank you.
