The view from this home cannot be beat. Everything about this home was magical- from eating breakfast down by the private staircase into the sea, to cooking in the cute kitchen, followed by leisurely dinners on the beautiful porch, watching the sun go down.
Franz connects his visitors with Tommiza, a very helpful local, who met us at arrival to show us the home and offer help arranging a boat rental and fresh fish he caught and delivered to us later in the week. He made our trip seamless and it was helpful to have a friendly helper available should we have a last minute need or question. The water pressure and temps were great, from the two outdoor showers to the beautiful one inside the master bedroom. The view from the bedroom is an incredible one to watch shooting stars and night and beautiful sunrises in the morning. If you want to sleep in, bring your favorite sleeping mask! We brought snorkeling masks and enjoyed looking at the beautiful fish just off the property. We also bought swimming shoes, which made the long staircase to the sea, boating, and swimming in the ocean, more comfortable for our feet that are generally in shoes. :) There is a delicious (although somewhat pricey) restaurant within a 2 minute walk, and a small grocery store within a 15 minute walk (go in the morning for produce and fresh bread- they're out by the evening) but otherwise the neighborhood is residential and tranquil. It isn't imperative to have a car if you don't plan on exploring other areas, but we were very happy to have rented one, as there are so many lovely areas to explore all over the island.
