A fantastic terrace with BBQ-perfect for relaxation or entertaining. Balconies have shade or sunshine -this apartment has it all. Also very secure apartment/complex with pool. Travelled as family of 5 with three children under 10 and it worked really well for us.

We have rented five other houses around the island, and can happily report that this is our favourite! We never tired of the ever-changing view over the lagoon - boats bobbing merrily on the sparkling water whilst the sun came up and we ate our breakfast, the next minute a cluster of clam hunters searching for their treasure, a delivery of beer for the shop, a happy gaggle of kids out on their kayaks, laughing and playing..... and we always made time for sundowners as we watched the astonishing sunsets. The position couldn't be better - almost equidistant between ferry and Atlantic beach, and just a stone's throw from the shop and cafe. The house itself was superbly well equipped, spacious and comfortable and we wanted for nothing. Plenty of indoor and outdoor space for everyone, comfortable sunbeds, lovely shade over the outdoor table..... and even a washing machine and hanging line. Ilse was a great help - she met us on arrival to show us to the house, even though we arrived at midnight, and provided us with a first basic shop and good advice whenever needed. We had a very happy and relaxing stay and are already planning our next visit. Utterly wonderful. Thank you.
