                                                              Our hosts could not have been more friendly, obliging and accommodating. Our accommodation was spacious, clean and comfortable. Only one minor problem. Sime other guests forgot to lock the bathroom door, therefore a Vacant/Engaged sign on the bathroom door would avoid little embarrassments. The garden and swimming pool are beautiful and Krista provides a fantastic massage if required. Thouroughly recommended Kate and Clive Corbey
