    If you want a memorable beach holiday this is the place to stay. Gorgeous and unique garden setting with interesting tiles and artwork. My daughter and son ran around excitedly commenting on everything as she explored. The princess tower, bikes, sandpit and hammock made for a childs wonderland of delights. Marina took us on a tour of her amazing garden and we came back with eggs and produce and ideas about raising chickens. A most memorable stay, we can't wait to come back!
