Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, comfortable and cozy. The cottage has honestly a peaceful feel to it, some moments we wanted to just be lazy and stay in the cottage. The beach is only a 5-10min walk, you and your significant other can use that time to bond and feel young again, other activities and restaurants are also within walking distance, but u can also drive if u choose to, we had no issues with finding parking. Thank you Reza for opening the doors to your cottage, allowing us the chance to have such an unforgettable weekend away. We are very pleased and grateful for ur hospitality. We definitely hope to return again soon. Thank you!!!

Perfectly out of the way!

  • 5 of 5

What an awesome little bungalow! Convenient to every part of the island yet perfectly tucked away. Quiet, clean, well appointed little place for just the two of us. The off street parking is just what my hubby wanted...makes you feel like your things are better protected. We absolutely loved our stay!

Reza is the perfect hostess! We can't wait to come back!!

Quiet, Comfortable and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This quaint and comfortable cottage is perfect for a couple's getaway. The location is great, close to the beach and The Strand. Everything you could possibly need is in the cottage. The bed is incredibly comfy for a great nights sleep. The beautiful courtyard is perfect for relaxing in the morning or evening. It even has a grill. Reza has thought of everything and she is also the perfect hostess. She is there if you need her but you don't even know she is there. We were very pleased with everything and will definitely be back!
