                                                              Lovely villa, very relaxing stay

                                                              4 of 5
                                                              Homely relaxing villa with lovely pool area, well maintained. Lots of different seating outside in the sun & shade. Pool cleaned daily. Good location, although by the road, is still private and away from the little tourist boat routes that you can take around the complex. Easy ride to Downtown or the Marina using the tuk tuk's or shuttle bus to the restaurants & supermarkets. Would definitely recommend if you want a nice relaxing holiday.
