      Peace and quiet. Wake up to the sound of birds or crashing waves! Perfect for a getaway from the hustle and bustle of the daily city routine. Neat and clean with complimentary coffee and toiletries. A wonderful stay.

      Beautiful, comfortable home! Very modern, the place looked brand new! Spacious bathroom, lovely queen size bed, comfortable couch and dstv. Can’t wait to go back. Cherry on the cake would have been a dishwasher though.
