Apartment had everything you need and the host was very accommodating. I would definitely stay again. Thank you For having us.

Key positives were quiet location, access to beach, excellent pool, clean and tidy house. We enjoyed the stay very much. Only slight improvements would be more comfortable seating for inside of the house. Also in terms of charging it might be better to include the costs of cleaning in the initial rental costs, and HomeAway might suggest this to those using site. However, house is strongly recommended and the owner was very easy to deal with and helpful.
