Stayed in December, had an AMAZING time :) Lesley the owner is a very welcoming host and she provides a great self-catering/they make food it(XD). I went 4 months ago and still wish i could go back.
The nearby beach is amazing too! not even a 5 minute, SAFE walk to the beach where the water temperature was plenty hot for any one not keen on cold water
Every now and again their is a party... i was luckily enough to organise (with some great incentives) to stay an extra night when there was a party, and we hadnt booked.
Can be a bit crazy at times, the owner is spiritual and very tolerant of different cultures,
PS try get her drunk and she might take you to the local night club (i forgot the name of it) LOTSA FUN!!!
