The apartment is beautiful, amazing view and everything you could possibly need. The beach is right across the road, and the town is about 10 minutes away. All correspondence was dealt with promptly, and the hostess was extremely helpful when I needed information about ferries. Highly recommended!

Management response:

Thank you for chosing my apartment from the other side ofthe world!.
