We spent some nice days in this house. Annette was a helpful and kind host. The house was not as clean as expected. Many ants and cockroaches around, but it gave the impression that the former guests messed up a little. The pool was a gem and we enjoyed cooking in the well equipped kitchen. The house is prefect for holidays with the whole family.

Great house with a nice pool. The children were especially happy about the provided toys for the pool! We had a wonderful stay and enjoyed some nearby beaches. A car is a must for this location. Thank you, Annette!

Annette was a great host! Her place was beautiful and had many nice touches. We were 5 and very comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked to cook and the pool was amazing. Annette was available via text/call whenever we needed her. We had a very memorable time and get right at home. The neighborhood was very quiet and he location was perfect. Close to beaches and the pier. We truly enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back. Thank you Annette for having such a lovely place! Jen
