The villa was everything we expected and more. Spacious, especially if you bag the top bedroom with two balconies, but every room has a terrace and some nice nooks and crannies to escape with a good book. The wendy house was a hit with my 2 year old and he spent most of the day in there, handy when the sun was so hot. The indian restaurant at the top of the road is first class, non greasy and loads of choice! Beautiful beaches within 15 minute walk with beach bars and lovely soft sand! What more could you ask for. Many Thanks for an excellent holiday! C & Family

I will say that the pictures do not do this villa justice. Impossible to be disappointed. Also, with regards to the amount of rooms, along with the extra bedding and put up beds, you could possible fit 15 in easily. Thank you so much for so a wonderful holiday and we shall all be returning at some point

The location is excellent near a spar supermarket and near the Jompra restaurant which just happens to be our favourite. The villa is lovely with everything you need, four good sized bedrooms and great outdoor space with the pool being very big. I can not wait to come back.
