This is a happy holiday home. Nothing is modern, in fact it is very old as it was bulit in 1972 but it is a place in which you can relax and enjoy your holiday and go to sleep to the sound of the sea.
Large terrace for sunbathing around the sparkling solar heated pool with easy walk down steps for sole use of guests. Escape to the large roof terrace with its spectacular views over the ocean for even more private sunbathing. Grassed lawns either side of the pool for those golfer’s who wish to chip over it from one side to another! A shaded veranda (with old farm and fishing articles hanging up) for meals or concrete tiled table and benches by the pool. We have a very large "Heath Robinson" wind up BBQ to take about 50 chops or 20 chickens (a fish van comes every day but you have to listen for him, he sounds his horn, or you can phone and ask for what you would like and he will deliver).
There are flowers and shrubs and maybe tomatoes hanging from the pots. Two banana trees have been planted but won’t mature for a couple of years. Bougainvilleas surround the shaded terrace for outside eating. There are sun loungers with cushions by the pool and umbrella for added individual shade. Outside shower for after beach wash downs.
