Imho this place is lovely. The bungalows are with no fancy frills but with everything you need and very spacious, the garden is very nice and the area one of the best of the island, far from the chaos and with picturesque valleys behind. The prices are great and i'm sure that I could not have wished for better. You... More

Fully agree with all the reviewers here, this is a really comfortable place to stay and just what we wanted -a home away from home. The owners are really nice and helpful. The set up is great, you have pretty much your own house, access to the pool, BBQ and games room with pool table, games, TV, and a library... More
