 The Cottage was well equipped for any length stay, the homely touches were much appreciated. The kilometre walk to the beach was over flat ground making it easy for all. It maybe close to the road but that didn't cause any problem with noise. 

 We had a really nice experience with the host, the place and the location The host responded very swiftly to our request to book the place and communicated greatly. The place is cosy, was really clean and the location is quiet and nice (close to beaches on the peninsula) We have been greeted with the owner self produced olive oil and all amenities required for our stay. On departure we were invited to taste some other local production and left with the intention of coming back. great experience! 

 Lovely place to stay, really quiet but not out of the way from beaches and other site seeing places. tidy house with plenty of space. 

 Great place need to go back again 

 Awesome location close to the beach and the Cape. Clean, tidy and warm cottage.
