When we first pulled up to the sky house I was speechless! The view is stunning and the house spectacular... Then my partner proposed!!! We spent a beautiful 2 nights here and enjoyed an amazing meal in the beach taverna, staff are lovely and we couldn't have asked for any more!!

The house had plenty of room and all the comforts of home, comfy beds, Wi-Fi, DVD's,music system, a kitchen that had everything you need, plus more...loved the fresh coffee beans, spices & herbs. Great location, just a short stroll from the beach. Also enjoyed... More
