Fabulous Place To Stay

5 of 5
We have just returned from a week's stay here and we loved it. The owners keep the place spotlessly clean, the swimming pool and the gardens are beautiful. They are also very helpful and friendly. The apartment has everything you need, air-con etc. and is very comfortable, the location is so peaceful. You do not need a car, because the location is just near the waterfront of Cabanas and ideal to ensure that you can explore the area. Would definitely recommend this accommodation. Overall, if you are looking for a relaxing holiday somewhere that is close enough to the waterfront to visit shops and restaurants but far enough to get peace and quiet, this is the place for you. We would definitely return!
