Left on 08/31/2006 for a stay in August 2006 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Aug 31, 2006Stayed Aug 2006
The property is quite beautiful and being able to pick fruit was a novel experience. Ask the owner about restaurants and anything else that comes to mind even a mojito recipe! He is very helpful and knows a lot about the area.
The property has a great swimming pool and garden filled with fruits and flowers. Very nice to go out in the morning and pick tomatoes and lemons for the salad.
Although quite beautiful, the garden attracts lots of common houseflies that are very aggressive. Also, since the garden is high maintenance, at least one person arrives every day to do something which makes the property less private and less peaceful. Also, there is a dog caged on the property that barks all day and night, and hens and a cock in the backyard that wake you up very early in the morning. You get used to those after a while, though.
