                                                                    4 of 5
                                                                    First to mention is our hosts, Patricia and Jesus; they were wonderful, very helpful, friendly and gracious. Our Studio was pretty much as we expected and as the advertisement pictures illustrated. The electric shutters were great, and used every day while we did the touristy bits, and as a by product kept the studio cool for our return, and every night minimise bugs etc. The extra benefit of the sliding fly screen was also a great asset. The facilities were pretty standard regards kitchen equipment and bathroom. Air con was a must and the extra of having a ceiling mounted fan was a good asset. The pool setting was great and we made max use of this after touring and for rest periods between touring. We loved the garden planting with very architectural planting that gave great ambience and shade. The evening pool lighting was fantastic as were the path lights with a collection of interesting ceramic urns with holes for the light to escape. A trip to sit in the "lounge" area by the pool was the only source of wifi connection, which may be a good way to interact with other occupants, but we never saw anyone else using this area when we were around. Would recommend for an excellent quiet escape from the built up coastal areas. We didn't find the 20 min drive to/from the beach, shops etc any hassle at all - in fact it made us appreciate our "sanctuary" even more.

The owner had put a lot of thought into the layout and provisions within the villa, even leaving us a bottle of wine. The basics were there such as loo paper and coffee, which is always such a nice touch as you can rest before going to get food. The pool area was perfect with palms offering shade as well as areas to soak up the full sun. The pool itself was surprisingly big and deep, allowing for long leisurely swims to cool off.It was lit at night offering such an appealing ambience, you just has to go swim! The rooms, all airconditioned offered comfort and releif from the heat. The bedrooms were fab each with access to its own bathroom. The upstaits bedroom with just that extra bit of luxury!! My husband and I, with our family all grown up were able to benefit from the total piece and privacy and touch base with each other in and amongst our busy lives. Most definitely a little romantic and a little slice of heaven!! Thank you Mr. Fleischer:)

The house is styled with all modern cons and decorated to a really high standard. Could not find fault with any aspect. Cannot wait to return.
