Wonderful Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property in a great location - a short walk to the beach. The house is in a gated community so felt very safe. The house is beautifully designed inside and out - a perfect place for a perfect holiday.

  • 5 of 5

A luxurious and very well-equipped house which provided everything and more that we needed. Our group comprised of four adults and five children and there was plenty of space for us all. An extremely well designed house with a pretty garden and lovely heated pool. The location is fabulous being a short walk down to the beautiful sandy beach which we always had to ourselves with not another soul to be seen. We would love to return and really recommend this property.

Super Haus mit guter Ausstattung !

  • 4 of 5

Wir waren mit einer Gruppe von 10 Leuten im Eden Haus.

Hat uns gut gefallen.Gute Ausstattung und nettes bzw. fleißiges Hauspersonal.

Einziges minus. Kein Raumentfeuchter und regelmäßige überprüfung des Wasserzustand des Pools. Wäsche trocknet nicht und immer leicht feuchte Luft in den Räumen. Aber kein Schimmel !

Owner's Response: Thank you Ralf for your comments. It is difficult to keep the pool levels up during this water shortage. But we will endeavour to take on board your comments - thank you

Beautifully designed house

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful and well kept house near the sea. The design is very nice, lots of gadgets and buttons. Owner Karen and staff are very helpful. Perfect for a stay in Wilderness and a good base for visiting the surroundings.
