Very clean with excellent choice of breakfast. Good parking and ideal location. Owners had a good knowledge of the island and helped in locating good places to eat. Lovely afternoon cake left in the room each day.

Therefore we can be flexible when the need arises as long as we are kept posted on the time of arrival,and it is agreed upon by both parties,which it was in your case....
