The host was very nice and understanding it was a group of ten people staying there which was very comfortable. You could easy fit more than that. Views are incredible, great location. I will definitely be recommending Michael's luxury villa in the future.

The location was great, the house was clean and comfortable and the pool & garden area was a dream to relax in. Although we didn't get to meet Belel (the host) he was a delight to communicate with and I could tell from his emails that he cared and wanted us to have a comfortable stay. We really appreciated that. Joe (the house maid) was lovely and helped us with any questions we had. We would certainly stay again if they continue to rent. Thank you : )
