Ages ranging from eight to eighty... we had a brilliant stay the villa is spacious and comfortable with an amazing outside area.. which we took full advantage of... please don't be put off with the location in close proximity to the strip.... you really would t believe how quiet it was both during the day and at night.... the owner Jim was very helpful during our booking and Miguel the manager was amazing even organising a birthday cake for us.... will definitely be using you guys again.
