Let me begin by saying the only reason I gave 4 stars (I wouldve given 4.5 if it was an option) instead of 5 is because of the pillows. I like fat, fluffy bed pillows and because these were on the flatter side, I had a few sleep deprived nights. So if you prefer to be propped up in bed,...

Management response:

Some guests prefer different types &...

A great vacation can only happen if the location, accommodation and people are great too. Although I had not spoken or met Yvonne or Chris the information and helpfulness was fantastic, especially when my airline decided to change the date of my flight. I know when I first thought about rental, I thought "what if this" and "what if that"...

Management response:

So glad that you really enjoyed your holiday & stay with us. Only sorry that we were not able to be there to meet you -maybe next time? Chris & Yvonne

Birds and lizards all over the place....as well as lovely owners and other guests. This is truly one of the places we have visited that feels...

It was really lovely to have you both stay....hope to see you both in the future Chris & Yvonne
