Guest Book What our guests are saying about us.

Very friendly with a warm welcoming vibe. Clean and very tidy with a great beach and brilliant sunsets.


The Villa was perfect and had everything we needed. We loved how nothing was a problem. Hosts went out of their way to go the extra mile. Definitely the best side of the island. Highly recommend it.
