Spacious and good value!
This property was excellent. The villa was spacious and was good bang for the money. The staff was helpful. The breakfast was served in your villa each morning and was very good. You are literally a 5 minute walk to the beach and another few minutes over a walkway puts you on Echo beach and in the middle of the surfing scene. These are not swimming beaches but are beautiful to view. Nearby, you have several eating options within a 5 minute walk. Premier is OK for a fair variety. The nearby Pizza+Beer=Love has excellent wood oven pizza, calzone and good pasta dishes at a reasonable price. A gem down a nearby ally way was Taco Swell. Jeff (from Michigan) served up homemade salsa, great nachos and some pulled pork tacos that were wonderful. The Mexican menu is limited but extremely satisfying and the conversation very entertaining- we would highly recommend. There are also a couple of warungs within a 10 minute walk that we were told were good but did not have a chance to eat at. We wish that we had booked a couple of more days here. It was a nice, relaxed spot very near the beach and but a definite scooter or taxi ride to much action/nightlife (which we liked). To be fair, there is a bunch of construction currently going on between this property and the beach ( about 7 new buildings going up right now). So, the vibe may change some in the near future since the sprawl seems to be reaching out to this area now. However, it was great for us on this trip.
