I knew that I would have to return home for some critical back surgery and wanted to prepare in the best place that I could find. Hans and Angie provide just such a place. Warm, inviting, erudite, and providing help for all those details of a stay in a new place. They have it all.
The funny thing is that my back pain went away in three days of tranquil relaxation and by the time I left, I thought that my surgery was not needed as the pain went completely away.
Well, the pain in my back returned upon arrival back home and indeed I did need the surgery.
I tell this story because of my having found a place to really relax to the sound of the sea, the discreet help from the staff and the beautiful space that they have created. If you want to unwind from the hustle and bustle, this is the place to go!
Their complimentary morning food service was wonderful, including a variety of selections to satisfy.
If you want something special, just ask. They arranged for a pedicure for me and will assist you in getting what you need from the local community to help in your stay.
