"With our 6 month old baby we were glad to have space for her to roam around the unit"

Walter and Liesel Rottcher

"he entire experience and enthusiasm of Rod and Avy made it a super pleasant experience.” 

An amazing, magical place. The location is superb, facilities are wonderful. We had our own DSTV and free Wi-Fi. However what makes this place so incredibly special to visit is Rod and Avy. Every one of them goes out of their way to make you feel as welcome and well looked after as is possible.

Our apartment was great, with an amazing view on the ocean. It truly felt like a second home! Our stay was amazing!

"We had a lovely time. It is like a home away from home, everything that you need in your kitchen. They got so you don't have to bring anything with you. It is a well thought out lay of the place and well equipped. Bonus was having the full satellite dish when you away on holiday to play music or watch sport and the fact you could even watch a movie from a usb stick is awesome. Well situated and not far from shops and we felt totally safe. We really felt at ease and at home."

It was our first visit to that part of the coast and found the Cintsa beach to be excellent with nice surrounding places to visit and a pleasant climate. Well worth a second visit."
