Nice time away

5 of 5
We stayed in this beautiful villa for a week and really enjoyed the stay and nearby locations. The property is 15-20 mins. away from most beaches. The villa was comfortable with a nice private pool. Only complain we had was there were no essential supplies like toilet paper, tissue rolls, detergents etc and we had to buy everything. It is difficult to buy these items just for a week's stay. Luckily, we had a car and there are few stores 10 minutes away. Mike was very helpful and easy to reach. He personally came by to introduce himself and give us some local tips. We look forward to renting a villa again in the future!
