Isabel and Greg made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived. The apartment has everything you would need..right down to the beach umbrella, beach towels and sunscreens, maps, books etc. It is very tidy & clean and the bed was very comfortable. The gardens and outdoor areas were very inviting after a day exploring the area. The grocery store was just around the corner and (thanks to the owners) we discovered a couple of lovely restaurants within walking distance. Some really gorgeous hiking on the coast near Benigal. We would definitely recommend!

The kitchen was tiny but the outdoor barbecue fully compensated for this.
