It was a good, simple homebase. They kept forgetting to put toilet paper in our room. There was no fan in the bedroom, which would have been great if you don't want to sleep with the A/C on. Otherwise Paul was very friendly and helpful! The kitchen was good, although I felt like a midget with the cupboards being up...

Dear Nicol, Thank you for posting your review and for your suggestion about the fans. Since we have AC in the rooms, we have never had a request for an additional fan but your point is valid and we will certainly keep one in the reception should this ever come up again. As for the toilet paper, it is our...

The name got it right: this place is a jewel right by the ocean. Most of the time we felt like it was just us and the ocean... nobody in sight and wonderful water. We had some amazing sunrise and sunset paddleboarding sessions. The owners make you feel welcome as soon as you pass the gate. The place is small...

me and my family had an awesome five days holiday in one of the two beach front villas. The villa is large enough for a family with a separate kitchen, guest toilet, dining room and a living room with patio that faces the beach on the ground floor and two bedrooms with separate toilets and balconies on the first floor...

This place is gorgeous. Garden apartment was spacious, clean and modern. You could not ask for anything else, beach on the door step. Paul and Brenda were great hosts and we would definitely return. Close to the airport. Each apartment has got individual car parking space. P.S do not complain about seaweed, not owners fault, hire car and explore the...

The rooms are clean and well-equipped. Paul is a great host and knows everything you would need to know about the island. He is able to offer hints and tips of where to go and what to see. There is a private beach right outside the apartment and is perfect for a quiet sunset/evening stroll at the end of the...

We spent 4 relaxing nights here. Paul (the owner) was very friendly and generously upgraded us to a larger room following a late cancellation. The property is next to a quiet beach which is good for cooling off and long strolls. We hired a car for 45 Euro from Gerard (next door) which allowed us to explore the island and...

Nice and clean house, albeit not charming. Great location on the mostly deserted beach (peaceful!) with lovely views. Nice sunset views. However, the water is covered with seaweed year round, so there is hardly any of that lovely turquoise colour I love and had hoped for. For that you need to go to other beaches. Great value for 4 people...

Dear Susanne, I wish to thank you for posting your comments and feedback, however I must clear up some facts. To say that our beach is covered with seaweed year round, one must spend 12 months of the year at our property to say this. I sincerely disagree with such an observation from someone who only spent 3 nights on...

“The seas facing villas were more private than the road facing apartments so if your budget can stretch, I recommend booking a villa”

“Ask for a sea facing room near the beach. Bit noisy in the rooms near the main road. Wifi signal was not very strong in the rooms neither. Had to sit out on the steps nearer the office to get a stronger signal. Get up early and walk the long beach. So quiet and not many people around.”
