We loved this house. Most glorious location overlooking a cobalt sea with a refreshing breeze cooling things down. Very clean and equipped ( possibly could do with a couple of decent kitchen knives). We were met by charming Lenard who was always on hand if needed. We rented a car which is a must if you want to explore the island but could have stayed here gazing at the view and snorkelling in our private cove. Not much in the way of shops though in the village.
We wish we could stay for another month!
I suggest you bring beach shoes and your own snorkels as the cove is rocky but great fun.
If sand is more of your thing there are amazing beaches 2 minutes drive away. One restaurant within walking distance plus a couple of resorts. However if you are after peace, spectacular views and the sound of the surf, this house is just perfect.
First of all, the pictures of the property do not lie; if anything they don't quite do the surrounding area justice! The house itself was beautiful, seemingly newly furnished, well kept, airy and clean. Definitely large enough for our family of four (all adults).
We spent hours on the balcony and the patio watching the local wildlife (pelicans, hummingbirds, lizards, frigate birds...) alternately catching the sun and cooling off. The sea just below is a coral reef and we spent hours snorkelling in the sea just below the house, which is easily accessible (if a bit of a swim) via the adjacent beach, or simply over the rocks (but beware of sea urchins!!).
There are several beach bars close by, however we visited out of season, and many of them weren't open. There was however a roadside stand providing barbecued chicken (and burgers) most days just near the end of the drive! A car is pretty much essential given the relatively quiet location.
The property manager Lenard and his wife were incredibly accommodating, friendly and available throughout our stay, frequently offering ideas of places to visit. Prior to our arrival we were emailed saying we would be met at the airport by a representative, who took us to our accommodation, and offered us the opportunity to go grocery shopping en route, which we gratefully accepted!
Given the chance, we would go back tomorrow!
