We stayed in a two bedroom cottage with a nice little kitchen. The views from the cottage were amazing. When it was clear you could see out to the bay. You have the option... More

My first choice of place was taken, so I had the option of a place that was $200+ for the one night we were here, or this place. We got a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom cabin for under $100. After reading the reviews of this place, we decided this was the way to go. Pros: Beautiful location, secluded area, not... More

We had a great time. Ideal for families with children that can run around the beautiful garden and use the swimming pool. The cabins are basic but very clean, a few more utensils and pots and pans would have been appreciated. Location is very good. Excellent service for booking activities and sorting things out. We would definitely like to go... More

After staying in a very so so hotel we were delightful to find this place. The cabanas are family owned and you can see their attention to the property.
