A comfortable stay with a beautiful sea view. ”

My stay at this property was very comfortable. I was there with my wife on my honeymoon and the host gave us a very comfortable room with a sea view. The room was very neat and clean. The host were very warm and welcoming. They made sure that every guest had a great experience. They made amazing breakfast. We faced some issue with our rented vehicle, but the host helped us as much as they could and even spoke to the rent a car company to help us out. We are highly grateful to the host for giving us such a warm and comfortable experience.
