      We enjoyed our stay but was disappointed that Safaeri did not tell us that the whole area was burned which included 512 houses in the area. Concerning Ithaca itself. It will be good if you could warn the guests who want to book the place that here are no curtains in the whole place especially in the bedroom with windows covering the whole wall from the ceiling to the floor. w We will not book it again.

      Such a beautifull house. Loved the easy living the house offerd. Opening all the glass doors, you feel so close to nature. The natural surroundings takes your breath away. From the wild garden to the well thought out interiors of the home, this house ticked all the boxes for a relaxing getaway.

      The house is extremely hot.Although the feeling of freedom is absolutely fantastic it would be nice to have blinds to pull for extreme heat over the very hottest times of the day.

      We spent 4 nights at Ithaca... House has a lovely feel to it,  and a pleasure cooking in the kitchen with the island gas hob, and looking out onto the ocean.Going to sleep is wonderful,  very peaceful with only the sound of the ocean. Thank you Eileen for letting me cook with your fresh herbs which are grown in a herb garden with spectacular views of the mountain, which can also be seen when relaxing in "the sun room". Our german shepherd enjoyed exploring! Thank you agan Eileen for allowing my fur child to join us. RELAXED!!  Graham & Michele
