It will not disappoint with its truly spectacular views and proximity to the ocean. Highly recommended!! We spent 19 days there over the festive season. The villa is new, clean and bright. It is decorated beautifully and fully equipped with all amenities. In addition a housekeeper came every week to change the bedding and do general cleaning. The highlight though is its situation and the indescribably beautiful views. The whole front of the house opens to the sea, so even when you are indoors you feel like you are outside. Sitting on the upstairs balcony early in the morning and late in the afternoon is heavenly. The area is residential, so mostly quiet. Being the festive season there was some activity in the surrounding homes, but nothing that was noisy or intrusive. It is preferable to have a car if you want to get around, although the bus stop is within walking distance if you prefer. Some reviews have commented on the noise from departing aeroplanes. For our aviation-mad family this was actually a big plus, and one reason to chose this particular property! My husband and son had flight-radar 24 apps on their devices and spent as much time as possible spotting planes. I would stress that there was no actual disturbance to us. The numbers of flights are few and concentrated at particular times of the day. Phillip was extremely helpful throughout the booking process, answering questions in advance of our stay, and even calling the villa while we were there to check that we were settling in ok. He asked his property manager David to pick us up from the airport. Given that we were very tired after 2 days of travelling it was a most welcome gesture. He offered to stop by the grocery store for supplies as well. David was always available for small issues such as light bulbs that needed changing, and he arranged for someone to fix the freezer when it stopped working. He also came intermittently to check and clean the pool during our stay. We had a fantastic few weeks, felt completely relaxed and rejuvenated by the end, so much so that we are looking for our own piece of paradise just along the road! My only small suggestion would be that the lovely pool perhaps may need heated in winter. It was manageable for a quick swim but it was not warm enough to be lazing around in the water. The constant sea breezes that are usually so welcome may be just a bit too effective cooling the water!

                                                                                                      Diana's Villa is beautiful - lovely location right by Bottom Bay Beach - one of the best beaches.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      I had an amazing time at Diana's Villa - the apartment is very clean and has all the amenities that is required to have a fantastic stay. The bedroom is lovely as windows on both sides so you get the wind blowing through, I didn't use the Air Conditioning for the whole time I was there. The kitchenette is well equipped and I cooked virtual every evening. The swimming pool was brilliant and where I spent most of my time as I went for a relaxing time. However if you wish to explore the Island there is a bus stop at the top of the road, which will get you to the main parts of the Island, they are regular and a great way to explore. Or you can hire a Car. I felt completely at home on my stay and an added bonus was Duke the dog, he was an amazing companion, looked after me and made sure I was safe. I went on walks with Diana and Duke everyday and evening and the area has stunning views. I booked the apartment for a chilled 19 days and I can't fault Diana on her hospitality. Everyone has a different type of holiday in mind so that others know Diana is well informed about the Island and is there for you if you require any information. I have been to the Island a few times so used the apartment as a base to visit other friends. I would not hesitate in recommending SEA BREEZE. So thank you Diana & Duke for the most relaxing time and I looked forward to visiting you again very soon.
