Nothing could have been more perfect

  • 5 of 5

The communication before we arrived was excellent, very clear precise directions, we found Casa Mica easily from the airport. Our party consisted of 6 in total, we had also booked the Casita as well. Everything was perfect, spotlessly clean, loved the jacuzzi, and the outdoor bar and gas grill. Christine and Colin were perfect hosts, they could not do enough for us to make our stay the most enjoyable that we have experienced, really cannot wait to return very soon. Thank you both so much.

Beautiful place to chill out and relax a few days.

  • 5 of 5

Hosts went out of their way to make us all feel at home. Lovely place, but watch your heads if you are tall. After a swim and jacuzzi we relaxed on the balcony and saw a few shooting stars. We are sorry we only booked 1 night. Thanks Christine and Colin.

Christine and Colin we perfect hosts, they made us very welcome and we had a fab Sunday dinner with them after a long journey😊򒠊

They were also so helpful with the local area and it's surroundings. We felt very at home and would recommend the property.

The 'honesty bar' was amazing, everything was 50cents😁򐐼󮍸🍾󯠊
