We have now been there three times with our family of sixteen. The villa with its four bedrooms, three bathrooms. open plan kitchen, lounge and dining area is spacious, clean and comfortable. On this level there is a bbq and outside seating for all of us. There is also a table tennis table and a covered sitting area. The other four bedrooms and bathrooms on the swimming pool level are equally good. The pool is gorgeous as are the gardens with the lovely mango trees giving natural shade. There are also plenty of sunbeds. The owner, Su, is delightful. She welcomed us warmly and is always available if you need her. We can't fault this lovely place and hope to return yet again. Would I recommend this holiday rental to my best friend? Yes.
