Beautiful property with a very well-maintained garden, a large swimming pool and plays for kids. We really appreciated our stay and the cordial welcome of the owner.
Main points for attention :
- the swimming pool is under the trees and we had to clean it daily (at least, 30mn a day) the first week, the water smelt bad but after the intervention of a external provider mandated by the owner, the swimming pool was perfect with the hot water option (necessary, even in summer)
- the house is very clean but gets older : dishwasher out of order the first week, no cold water in the bathtube, some mould in the showers
- quiet environment but you may be woke up by the high number of dogs in the neighbourhood
As a family of 6adults and 5 children we all had a wonderful holiday at this villa. The villa was very spacious and well equipped and the outside area was outstanding with plenty of areas to relax or play.The children enjoyed the pool and we would definitely recommend heating it.Although we had some difficulty finding the villa it was well situated for visiting beaches and towns.The owner was very pleasant and most helpful.We would definitely reecommend this villa for families

The pictures dont do the villa justice. The charm, beauty, comfort far exceed what the pictures depict. So much thought has gone into this property and how it was developed and it shows.
I have never rented a villa or any other vacation spot over the internet before and was concerned at first. After this experience, I would never hesitate to rent again. Not only was the villa wonderful, but the owner of the property is a special person who is not only gracious, friendly and kind hearted. But she goes out of her way to make your time at the farm the best experience you could wish for.
I am blessed for having taken a chance and renting this villa becuase I had the best vacation in years and made a new friend.
We had a wonderful holiday. The house is beautiful and set in its own delightful gardens, all beautifully tended. The owner is extremely charming and helpful in every way. We had 8 adults in the house at one time and it was very comfortable and an interesting blend of design.

This is an excellent holiday villa for family and friends spacious, beautiful and have everything you need from children play area, pool to adults reading/relaxing corners. The pleasure of picking homegrown fruits from the villa for breakfast was wonderful. The owners Indians home delivery added extra comfort while we were all tired with cooking or going out for dinner. We will use it again and highly recommend to friends. Thanks Avani for being a great host. Greetings from the Ellis family and friends.
