Loved this house, just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing, nicely nestled in the rainforest and walking distance to the beach. Beautifully decorated inside, ample of good clean Kitchen utensils etc. The beds were extremely comfortable and again linen was clean and in great condition. Large decking area for sitting and socialising together and a great pool area.

Frustrating at how dark it was inside during the day as well as night, better lighting is recommended.

Would definitely recommend to stay here
