Another wonderful week in paradise!

5 of 5
Thank you Mike for another wonderful week in your Cabin. There's everything anyone could need in this lovely cabin in a fabulous setting. Fully equipped, excellent air con, good wifi and TV. Pool is just ideal - plenty big enough for 4 adults to wallow in but also absolutely great for toddlers - our two year old grand-daughter spent hours happily splashing around. Lots of toys and inflatables, comfy sun beds and big umbrellas for shade. Pretty garden too - supper often taken under the big olive tree. Ideally situated for Alcausin or the coast, shopping, eating or just relaxing away from it all in the secluded location of the cabin's peace and quiet. Mike's friendly help always on hand - we couldn't hope for a better host. We'll certainly be back for a third visit before too long.
