The studio apartment is located below the main home and has good views looking down hill across open gardens and hillside to the ocean in the distance.

The accommodation is about 75 yards from the quiet village road and entry is up two or three steps onto a small covered porch area with table and chairs for two people. This is the spot for relaxing, eating and generally hanging out when not at the beach, and there is an abundance of birds, geckos, crickets and fireflies to attract attention by both day and during the evening.
