Our stay was for four nights in a one bedroom first level suite.
The view - magnificent!
The cottage - fully self contained with full stove, fridge, microwave and everything you could possibly need in the kitchen. The lounge and bed were in one room, the dining and kitchen in another with a good sized bathroom. The balcony included a wooden outdoor setting for two (again, the view from here, magnificent).
The grounds - great pool and plenty of loungers for gazing out to sea.
The beach - narrow, not somewhere I would sit between swims. Bascially you have the villas, a strip of lawn, pools and or loungers, then the beach (steps down), as can be seen on the web site.
Nearby - the cottages are on a busy road (which you can't hear from the cottages) and there is a supermarket nearby (approx. 10-15 minute walk) with a small shopping centre, and in the other direction a cinema and a great sorbet/ice-cream shop! ATMs at both locations.
The island - beautiful. Colin (the manager) will overview the options for tours and make recommendations - take them! This is a great island to explore. We ate at the Wharf Restaurant next to the cottages, don't be put off by the appearance, reasonably priced, good food. Otherwise, we catered for ourselves.
If you're after a place that is relaxing, quiet and allows you to do your own thing - this is it.
