we made a mistake with our booking (completly our own fault). and the owners were so extremly nice and helpful, beyond what we could have expected! The location is perfect right by the village and with direct acces to the beach.

We have spent 3 amazing days at this place. We had fresh sea food or fish daily which was very pleasant. Overall they really cook very very well. We liked a lot that you have nice pleasant leasure area from which you can see the whole beach. At the same time your are separated from the beach by the stairs so nobody comes to bother you. We felt just like home :)

If you want to spend a couple of days in Paradise, this is the place 😊 Cozy, clean and very beautifully decorated rooms, a very cute terrace and an amazing garden with an incredible view also very beautifully decorated with recycled materials and, of course, a white sand beach with a crystal clear turquoise water can be more than enough for a perfect holiday 😊 If on top of that you add one of the best coffees you have ever had and extremely tasty food your holiday becomes incredibly beautiful 😍 And if you also meet Olivia, one of the sweetest and most adorable persons you can meet in a lifetime, your holiday can become absolutely amazing 🥰
