Beautiful property and gardens. Lovely villa for 8 people, the setting of the pool in lush green gardens is perfect for relaxing. The pond was an added bonus for the kids and the atap/treehouse down by the beach is a lovely place to drop off to sleep with a sea breeze drifting by. Mery and Koman did a great job of looking after us; nothing was too much trouble and they produced delicious breakfasts, lunch and dinner, catering for our slightly fussy kids as well. We did struggle to go out given their fantastic cooking as well as the lovely dining area as the sun set with great lighting and peace and quiet. Aircon was very effective throughout along with the fans and everywhere was absolutely spotless. Minor criticisms would be that the bathroom adjoining the master bedroom upstairs might not be to everyone’s taste (us uptight Brits) as it is quite “open” to the rest of the house. The two downstairs rooms are adjoining, so perfect for kids + parent combo. However, the fourth bedroom is in a very cute small cottage just adjoining the property. This is perfect if you were a group or friends or perhaps had brought relatives without kids along, but it would make things quite difficult if your set-up was two families both with young kids. It’s nice to be right on the beach BUT at the time we visited it was quite a mess due to recent big storms that had washed a lot of debris up. Lots of holidaymakers/villa renters were doing a bit of a clean-up on the occasions we walked along.
