Another Guest Report 30 Jul 2011

Though I wrote a report two years ago there is not much to add. The house was in the same condition so were the steps but we managed them twice a day and enjoyed the house very much. Espcially the balcony with the great view. There is a Mango tree right in front of it growing high so we did not need to put up towels agains the sun but still had a nice view of the sunset.
If you are not looking for luxury but a nice house with everything you need expect of a TV (I never missed it) and if you are not afraid of a nice exercise (85 steps) then you shoud go there and enjoy.

Me and my friend knew the house because friends of us lived there two years ago so we were not surprised but after our two weeks holidays we found out that it is much better to live there than to go for a visit. The balcony is huge and we spend most of the time on it. You have a wonderful view on the playing field (we watched a lot of soccer games, though we both are not too much into soccer). You can watch the school and a part of the village. People coming and going and its very enjoyable.
It is a wooden house with open space, a large kitchen and living room and two bedrooms with a bathroom each. The bathrooms are small but still big enough. The bed has a big mosquito net over a shelf and there is a small cubicle for the clothes in both bedrooms.
The kitchen is well equipped with a four flame gas stove, a big fridge and a lot of pots, bowls and dishes.
The balcony is large and has an umbrella roof. In the afternoon we put some towels on the clothesline because of the sun but only for maybe one or two ours. There is another little balcony on the side with a Bar-B-Q. You can watch the sunset form the balcony.
There is also a fan but because of the open roof and the house is high on the hill there is always a little breeze.
There were enough towels and bed linen and some new snorkelling masks, binoculars to watch the birds, books and games to use for the guests.
You walk down 5 minutes to the middle of the village and the beach.
The housekeepers Doris and her husband took very good care of us. If you don't mind to walk up 85!!! steps almost twice a day you will love the house. We will definitely be back.
