Owner very helpful Fantastic location, stunning mountain view, lovely beaches in short driving distances. House very well equipped on the whole, but would benefit from a few more glasses. Wifi not very reliable. No A/C downstairs, although ok when all other units on for a while.

Beautiful house with a great view over the ocean. Very well equipped and clean. A joy to wake up every morning with the sunrise into the bedroom. We spent a lot of time on the terrace, short trips to the small neighbor towns and took a swim in crystal clear water at the rock beach every day. We had a super vacation! Ellen and Martin
