This is just the kind of place where we enjoy staying. Two weeks in October went by fast. Friendly and helpful owners who live on site. A nice assortment of guests that we thoroughly enjoyed meeting from around USA and South America. Location is good if you have a car. Other guests get along fine using bus around the island.... More
