Great Accommodation and excellent hospitality.

5 of 5
We have just returned from a week at Sun and Moon. We had only been there 24 hours before we decided we would definitely been returning! The booking process was easy and Christina, the owner, kept in touch when we booked, sent us the arrival details and met us easily as planned ( we were early and so was Christina!). We had an excellent introduction to the villa and Christina made sure we were happy everything was as we expected before she left us with a delicious homemade dinner and cake. The villa was bigger than we expected and it was well furnished, tastefully presented, very well maintained and was good quality throughout. The bathrooms were excellent with loads of hot water and good showers, the kitchen was well equipped and if that was not enough there was also a fully equipped outdoor kitchen with BBQ and pizza oven. On the cooler evenings the log burning stove in the sitting room was a real treat. Outside the garden was lovely and the view was awesome. The pool was a bonus though we decided that we would wait for a warmer visit before we tried it out! The maid service half way through our stay was great with fresh bedding and towels and all our laundry attended to. The location was great as we wanted to explore as much of the island as possible and though there were bars close by and restaurants a short drive away we ate in most nights (the supermarket was 5 minutes away by car). Christina's hospitality was exactly right. She made sure we had her telephone number if we needed anything, she called in a couple of times to make sure we were enjoying our stay and we were always delighted to see her especially when she brought a selection of fruit from her garden! When we left she told us that if there was any problem at the airport (it sometimes closes due to high winds) we must call her immediately and she would ensure we did not end up stuck at the airport overnight! Would we recommend Sun and Moon - most certainly and without hesitation. Would we return - most certainly and without hesitation. Was Christina a great host - most certainly. The only thing we would do differently next time is to make sure we stayed for longer and we picked a nicer week for the weather so we could take full advantage of the pool, outdoor kitchen and huge, sunny, balcony! Thanks Christina for a creating the perfect holiday home that formed the basis of a fantastic holiday! We look forward to returning.
