  • This property was a perfect size for us & our 16 year...

    This property was a perfect size for us & our 16 year old daughter. We loved the vineyard outlook & being nestled in countryside. The Cottage was very clean, tidy & beds very comfortable. There was a great assortment of books, magazines, board games & information about the Island available. Just a stones throw from Casita Miro &, a 15min walk to Onetangi beach ( or a few minutes by car). Fabulous location, we would definitely stay again!
