We also enjoyed the pool. We enjoyed watching the eagles and there were quite a few monkeys in the area. We also loved the dog Asher she was really a lot of fun. Thank you Johan and Nicky for a lovely stay and for your kindness and hospitality."

  • "Lovely"

    05 April 2012

    "Location was lovely. Access not very good - very steep, slippery steps. The unit itself was quite nice, just a little 'frayed at the edges'. Mattresses very hard and thin. A few little touches would make it very special. Views spectacular. The swimming pool and play area were very good. An extra set of keys would have been helpful. Access to beaches not great as you have to drive everywhere. Other facilities were adequate."
