I really enjoyed that this property was private and we had a lot of privacy with no distractions also that from every room we had a beautiful views. The beds were nice and comfortable with and rooms were very spacious. Nice and big.
We were very comfortable and enjoyed our use of the communal lounge area. We were lucky to be the only visitors, it might seem a bit communal if all 4 rooms are taken. Good to be able to walk around the garden and Avo orchard.
