Great house with amazing landscaping. This house was the perfect base of exploring the island - the location is central to plenty of great beaches and other destinations with markets in close proximity as well (we walked to the local markets on one occasion in about 7 minuted). Highly recomend the garden house

Beautiful, spacious and large space. Private and off of the beaten path. Loved having access to a kitchen. We enjoyed the gardens and serenity of the environment,yet it was easy to access neighboring towns,events and beaches. Close to town hall, if bus transportation is desired,and a very interesting general store. Would've preferred softer bed and bedding,but was a great choice overall.

Very nice, serene place, centrally located. Amazing landscaping and setting.
Feel that only drawback is that priced a little high compared to other properties for the size ( no dining area - have to pull out folding table as well as tight kitchen space). This might not be a concern if you plan on eating out majority of times and don't have kids

its was a great stay, with great service , just a suggestion , that you make it much clearer to the renter their access to the beaches .
there are public beaches and beaches run by each town that you need a pass for,that cant be used in another town, and there is a fee , you need to go to town hall to get the pass .we were not aware of this and ran into problems.
