Luxury and hospitality

Apartment had everything one would need and more. Amazing view, the pictures don't do it justice. Great location, close to the beach and shops. Chris was very welcoming and provided us with tips for sightseeing in the area. We would definitely stay here again.

Pleasant stay

5 of 5
We loved our weekend getaway at this house. The view, wildlife and nearby amenities were fantastic. The house was roomy and very clean, you could easily have three couples and their children stay - which would work out quite cheap. So relaxing and the house was everything we could have hoped for.
