8/10 Very good

The villa was very nice and we enjoyed our stay. The staff were extremely nice and very helpful. However, one thing we noticed was the villa was very dark inside. There was no natural light coming through. There was just the kitchen light and a couple of lamps. Going up to the top bunk was ok but coming down was a little scary because of the darkness in the villa. A lamp or light to access would make it easier to come down. I think the lighting needs to be updated. It needs more of the natural light if possible. Thank you for a lovely stay.

This boutique hotel on the calmer part of 7 mile beach is A TREASURE! Our one bedroom suite included a large screened in porch with a dining table and hammock, delightful. Our room was spacious and high end from the designer floor tiles to the custom wood shutters. Loved it! The staff was attentive, morning coffee and toast delicious and we really enjoyed the SUPs, floatation cushions and the use of the hobbie cat. We will definitely be back!
