The space
Inside the house…

The house accommodates 6 persons and includes 1 double bedroom 1 twin bedroom, a mezzanine with 2 beds, a bathroom, a kitchen dining area, a large open plan living room and two outside terraces, one for sun and one for shade. The kitchen has everything that is required for cooking and enough space to sit with two tables and eight chairs, one inside and one outside. The living area has 2 sofas and a double sofa bed. The house has fan cooling in all rooms.

There is a private garden with lovely views to the ocean. It has a mix of tropical plants with a sun terrace made from local sandstone. There is a raised shade terrace that has a table and chairs and hammocks. The shared environmentally friendly salt water infinity pool is 20m from the garden with perfect views over the sea. For much of the year you can see whales and flying fish from the terrace. It is very quiet with no cars allowed, just the sound of the waves. There is access to a small-secluded beach accessible by steps built into the cliff, about fifty meters from the villa. A short walk through the village brings you out on to the long white sandy main beach.

Your stay includes everything on the inventory (available on request) including bedding, house towels and beach towels. Also included is electricity, gas and water. Essentials for the start of your holiday such as, water, soap, shower gel, washing up liquid, toilet paper are provided.
