  • Was a great couple of days. Exactly what we wanted. Would recommend to anyone. Owner was good value and the manager was great.

  • This is one of the world's most perfect retreats. The setting is idyllic with a private beach, peacocks and chickens roaming free, and a couple of donkeys in the field which kept the children entertained for hours. The house is basic but clean and functional, and the best part has to be the pier with a picnic bench on it where you can enjoy all your meals and watch the sunset with a glass of wine. Paul was wonderful, kind, and completely at one with nature. He made you realise this is the pace life should be at. Do note that the drive is not for the fainthearted - rent a 4x4 and bring your food so you can settle in. But once you're there, you won't want to leave.
