Heaven on Earth!

5 of 5
Upon arriving, we were cheerfully greeted by Bonita our hostess. Welcomed us with a nice walk-through and shared her wonderful knowledge of herbal teas growing there on the property which looks more like the garden of Eden. The Cottage had everything you needed to make you feel right at home but relaxed. The sculpture garden was such a pleasure to see! Edwardo, artist/ owner, gave us a special viewing of some of private collection. So how can you beat this? How about wild parrots flying about the picturesque gardens??? I kid you not! Would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a unique experience.

Very nice apartment.

4 of 5
Really enjoyed our short time here. Milton is very helpful. Everything you need is in this modern apartment. Bit of a walk downtown, but there are buses and a taxi is 5 euro flat rate. If you have a rental car this would be great. Big shopping mall nearby.
