One of the coolest private houses I have ever visited which really makes you feel at home immediately. The house is beautifully finished in an unpretentious but incredibly luxurious way and with a star/whale deck, games room, huge pool (with diving board), hot tub, spa and gym and not to mention the superb fishing, snorkeling, beach games, picnics and cycling you can do a stones thrown away, you could easily stay there for 2 weeks without running out of things to do. The house sleeps 18 comfortably and with bunk rooms is perfect for a large family or group of friends. The food is delicious and in true homely style is more of a shared platter affair rather than fine dining. If you want a truly remarkable family holiday with a seemingly endless array of activities then this is the place.
