10/10 Exceptional

It's in a great location and the accommodation is lovely. Most things areat your finger tips. Sera is lovely and helpful. My few suggestions would be to add - some microwave dishes, instructions for the washing machine (unit 2 - dont know about other units) and a fitted sheet for the mattresses would be great, as the others move around & the bed making comes apart. Highly recommend as a place to stay. Thank you.

Better than amazing - Better than any 5 star resort if you don't mind no pool - GET A BIG SIN ON MAIN ROAD will finish it off beautifully.

This was a great choice for our family. 3 separate rooms, a big bathroom and a laundry. The villa looked brand new and was immaculate. I would highly recommend over a hotel as you have living space to relax in.
