Gorgeous place, breathtaking views, amazing atmosphere. If there's anything else you need for a perfect retreat in peaceful seclusion - they've got it, or they'll get it for you.
Steve and Kat are a great couple and run the place at a unique quality level. The setting of their villas give you a feeling of comfort while you enjoy the picturesque landscape. We loved it (2 adults + 3 kids below 5 yrs), but you might want to reconsider if you travel with a toddler as the villas are not "child-proof".
There was no swimming pool, but they have a jaccuzzi, I believe (didn't use it myself). The activities for kids consisted 100% of observing nature and the possibility of actually experiencing it first hand.
