Great Place to Stay
Full kitchen, comfortable bed, walk in shower and a great host. We had the privilege of experiencing the salt water pool which was very therapeutic and the backyard wildlife habitat is beautiful and refreshing. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Mediterranean Dream and would book again.

Thanks very much, Kathy! We're so happy you had the opportunity to enjoy our gardens during the peak summer season when so many colorful flowers were in bloom.

Great Studio Apartment with Cute Patio
Guy has designed and furnished a perfectly private studio with a separate entrance, kitchenette, bathroom with shower, and cute fenced patio. It is compact but has everything you need. The bed is really comfortable and linens are high quality. The place is impeccably clean. The fridge and stove are full size. He has included little touches to make your stay very relaxing. I had booked a place which the host cancelled as I arrived. I messaged Guy and he responded right away. Even though he had plans, he waited for my arrival and oriented me to the place fully. An excellent , thoughtful host.

Thanks so much, Francesca, for appreciating the home-like touches that create a stay very different from a vanilla hotel feel.
