Excellent apartment and garden area

4 of 5
We had an enjoyable stay and we found everything as described. Very comfortable stay. We could only book the smallest studio and although it suited our needs would book the larger one if we returned - which we might!

Fantastic on the beach stay

5 of 5
If you want to be on the beach for your stay at Plet, search no further. 2 Min through the gate and you are on the beach and less than 10 min easy stroll you will be on the main beach. The fully equipped house was a pleasure to stay in and the boys enjoyed the snooker table. The house was nice and cool the whole time and totally secure. Michael and Lorian were available via email or call whenever we had a question. We would definitely hire again when we go to Plet. Many a thanks to Letticia who cleaned the house for us every day.
