We have an amazing time in this house witch is perfect to relax in paradise. The combination of beach front and all the palm trees around the house are just perfect. Owners are very friendly and helpful.

The accomodation was great and having the wild beach on our doorstep was fantastic. Don;t expect luxury but the lovely house is full of charm and the manager and his wife extremely helpful; they made us very welcome.
