The house is very beautiful and spacious. The only problem is the cleaning, I think that cleaning staff should clean in the deail, the house in general is dirty. ....................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

We´ve been there in April 2012 for two weeks. Sharehouse was clean, price okay. No Data limit for the Internet=) We had a Jacuzzi there - but there cleaned them only once in two weeks. Good place to stay for a longer period - if you like the place depends on your roommates=)

I'd stay in csh for 5 months and it was a great location clean, nice location , easy access and really closed to the city, friendly staff although is not cheap but if you work it can be consider as value for money for the facilities they'd offer.. overall it was enjoyable place to live in!

“The rooms on the poolside closer to the back (i.e. not the front room on both levels) have no neighbours except for a dive company. It means no-one is looking in your window - it's a bit more private.”
