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.

Such a beautiful home! Steve and Di were the perfect hosts. Loved the views and our dogs also had a great time with fully fenced in lovely gardens, dog beds and even a raised water bowl! Can’t wait to come back.
