We stayed 3 nights in the cottage. The location is perfect, it's quiet because it's just off the main drag but it's also central - you don't need a car. We arrived to a big bowl of fruit, some champagne and Graeme welcoming us in his kind and understated way.
The cottage is small but a fantastic use of space. It's freshly painted, bright and clean. The kitchenette has everything you might need, including a dishwasher. There's a good sized balcony upstairs with table and chairs, and an outdoor area downstairs with a small heated pool and BBQ. There are also fans and airconditioning, though we didn't use either. Free wifi, some hair products and good linen were a few of the other nice touches.
Graeme was lovely and helpful - he also organized a transit for us back to the airport.
Wish we could have stayed longer, but I know we'll be back.
