Great location, just a short stroll from the beach. Also enjoyed... More

The name says it all as our experience has given us memories that will last a life time. The personal service offered by Sasha was exceptional, accommodating for our every need. The food by Rachael was divine to say the least and the Cliff House speaks for itself with its focus on the magical views over the pristine KI coastline.... More

We recently had a wonderful stay at the Sky House. We arrived to heated floor, the fireplace stacked, music playing, complimentary figs from the orchard and a note wishing us a good stay from the owner. The service was so thoughtful.
