We stayed with a family of 6 adults and 6 children and were warmly welcomed by Mary and Charlie in the early hours of the morning - after a long trip it was warmly received. A bowl of fruit awaited us and a large carton of milk, as well as weetbix for the morning so we had something when we... More

This place was perfect. The owners Charlie and Mary were delightful. The pool was fabulous and the studio unit we stayed in was immaculate. I could also see it would be great for large family holiday if the whole place was booked out. I would definately recommend it to anyone

I loved the villa I stayed in, it was quiet, reasonably private, clean and close to the pool. The hosts Mary and Charlie arranged airport transfers, they were welcoming and I was able to use the equipment down at "Charlies" free of charge. They make the best fruit smoothies, and panini. I had a fabulous time and was really sad... More
