Wonderful property

5 of 5
We loved our stay here. Everything immaculately clean and they had literally thought of everything - sun hats, sunglasses, lots of towels, toiletries, hairdryer. The kitchen was the best equipped I have ever seen in a rental house. We spent most of our evenings in the fantastic barbecue area. The pool area was also really well maintained. Restaurants, bar and the beach are a 10 minute walk away and we loved the lagoon. Super safe for our children to play in, whilst the dramatic atlantic ocean was right next to it. The pictures don't do the house justice. The layout is admittedly slightly odd, with 2 double bedrooms either side of the living room, another bunk bed room opposite the kitchen which only has an internal window, then an ensuite single room at the end of the house next to the dining room, but it all worked fine for us. We would return to this house for sure. A real gem.
