Guest Book What our guests are saying about us.

Nice villa, very friendly staff, it’s cool that you can borrow reef shoes and snorkelling equipment!!!


Comfortable accommodation, we slept very well. Throughout the booking process we received prompt friendly replies and felt reassured that our needs were going to be met. The Johnson family couldn’t have een more welcoming and friendly. Thanks very much for a super break.
