In terms of location - Magic.

  • 4 of 5

In terms of location - Magic. One of the most beautiful places we have stayed. The house itself is nice and big and built to be cool in Summer which was great with the 28 degree heat we had.

The property was gorgeous.

The property was gorgeous. The views were exceptional - better than the pictures. Very large living areas and the property was in great condition. Really good views from the dinning room, kitchen, outside BBQ area and the veranda. 105 out of 100.

The villa is awesome and the price is very good for such a view and location.

The villa is awesome and the price is very good for such a view and location.

I would give 5 stars if the kitchen bench was open so we could walk directly from the diner table to the kitchen instead of walking around through the lounge.

Overall we had a great stay in this house.
