The apartment has everything you need for two people including a lovely veranda overlooking the pool. James & Yvonne are always welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. The location is quiet and peaceful especially at night and the perfect place to unwind. The property is always spotless and well maintained and we would thoroughly recommend a stay here.

We were a family of 6 including my husband and I, our two children aged 3 and 7 and their 2 grandparents. It suited us perfectly! It is not a massively touristy area, but still has everything in the town that you could possibly need and has a nice relaxed atmosphere and feels very safe. Transfer from the airport was an easy 45-50 mins by taxi and we didn't need a car when we were there as all the shops, restaurants and lovely beach were in easy walking distance for both the young and old alike. The villa itself is lovely, but the real gem is the pool area. We literally lived outside by the pool as all the equipment and facilities you really need are right out by the pool. We only used the villa to sleep and the upper terrace for an evening drink and the rest of the time were out down by the pool. It was a fantastic week of outdoor living which the whole family embraced. The owners Cati and Toni were also really lovely both during the booking process, answering numbers questions, and recommending reliable airport taxi right through the very warm welcome on our arrival. Toni's mum also kindly checked on us in the week to ensure we had everything we needed. The whole family agreed it was a fabulous relaxing and special holiday. Its not often you go somewhere on holiday and it exceeds your expectations, but this really did! Thank you for having us to stay Cati and Toni!
